Mr. Andimile discussed an alternative protein and awareness intervention initiative in the Katavi-Rukwa Ecosystem. The project aims to vaccinate chicken against Newcastle disease, which causes reliance on bushmeat as a source of nutrition. By bringing local communities to the table through participatory methods, environmental awareness and the value of biodiversity is fostered while seeking viable options to enhance local public health and livelihoods. The project was funded by USFWS’s Wildlife Without Borders-Africa program through BEAN. http://www.bushmeatnetwork.org/bean%20founders.html#Ad
