Balek Wildlife Management Eco Tourism Project.
A grant of US$6028.45 has been appropriated for use by a community group who are the rightfull land and resource owners of the Balek Wildlife Sanctuary. The Wildlife Sanctuary is a National Government Conservation site although land and resources belong to the people of the Balek Community. Recently the people through frustration because of lack of development in their community decided to invite loggers into the site. As a means of preserving the presting site the GEF SGP decided to assist he people by providing a grant for eco tourist activities just at the entrance to the sirte. This includes traditional dancing, board walk , naming of plants and excursions by schools, tourists etc.
