Protection and Propagation of Endemic/Indigenous Ornamental Plants
Protection and Propagation of Endemic/Indigenous Ornamental Plants
This project has experienced lots of difficulties and is delyed due to lack of committment of NGO. It is proposed to close the project before the end of 2005 if nothing is done.
This project aims to conserve, re-introduce, propagate and sell endemic and indigenous ornamental plants. A portion of land of the extent of 1A12 at State land Malherbe, Wooton has exceptionally been allocated to the Mauritius Girl Guides Association in order to implement this project. The grant allocated by GEF/SGP will mainly be used to create jobs for four local people who will be responsible for the day to day care of the ornamental seedlings and plants. It will also be used for training and capacity building for these employees and members of the NGO, with the collaboration of the National Parks and Conservation Service and other botanists. The MGGA will carry out raising awareness campaigns on the need to protect and reproduce the endemic and indigenous plants of the island. The community of Malherbe will be involved in the implementation, monitoring and evaluation of the project. The ornamental plants will also be sold to the public in order to ensure sustainability of the project.
