Conduct land vertebrate survey in two intact Afromontane forests, Sale-Nono and Garba-Dima. Survey, assess and record the diversity, abundance and habitat associations of herpetofauna (amphibians and reptiles), mammals (small mammal, including bats, and large mammals) and birds. The two forest ecosystems are unique and deserve special conservation in their own right, but the vertebrate species list they harbor will add to the understanding of the importance of these areas and aid the designation of a higher level conservation category through establishing a biosphere reserve or national park.

Strategic Direction: 1 Mainstream biodiversity into wider development policies, plans and projects to deliver the co-benefits of biodiversity conservation, improved local livelihoods and economic development in priority corridors.
