Work closely with six communities in the Mt. Guna, Delanta-Gubalaftu and Mt. Choke areas of Ethiopia to identify, in a participatory way, livelihood options that reduce the impact on natural resources. Support four Nature Clubs to implement small-scale environmental activities, and recruit Wolf Ambassadors to raise awareness of environmental issues in each community. As a pilot activity to reduce the need for firewood, this project by the Ethiopian Wolf Conservation Programme also supports the establishment of a local fuel-efficient stove producer's micro-enterprise.
