Conserve the Critically Endangered Taita thrush (Turdus helleri) through restoring the understory vegetation within Chawia forest, while providing alternative sources to many of the forest products required by the local communities. Activities also include advocating for change in community use of the forest to improve the breeding success of this ground-dwelling species.

Strategic Direction: 2 Restore and increase connectivity among fragmented forest patches in the hotspot, especially in Lower Tana River Forests; Taita Hills; East Usambaras/Tanga; and Udzungwas
