He said his association’s objective is to preserve the flora and fauna provided by nature.

He reminded the gathering that apart from its natural usefulness the forest also generates income through monies collected from bird watching visits by tourists during the tourist season.

Five different species of trees were planted on the day purchased from funds donated by the Brufut Diaspora Association (BDA).
