Put dragonfly conservation on the map. Based on surveys, together with local conservation groups, produce distribution maps, checklists, and species action plans for two redlisted dragonfly species. Incorporate new information in the management plans of the two KBAs (Mount Kenya and Aberdare Mountains) for better protection of invertebrates. Also promote dragonfly-friendly activities along rivers and streams among local people (freshwater management).

Strategic Direction: 2 Improve the protection and management of the KBA network throughout the hotspot.
