Eden Creation Care Initiative

Associated Project in Nigeria

Eden Creation Care Initiative (EDEN) is a faith-based, non-profit, conservation organization based in Jos, Nigeria that helps communities protect areas important for their biodiversity, through educational programs and scientific research. They are currently running two conservation projects:

Rennajj Fish Farm is a comparatively small area of well demarcated privately owned land, covering 80 hectares. It is on the fringes of the Jos metropolis, and suburban development is currently proceeding close to about half of the farm perimeter. The most significant habitat there is wetland. It regularly holds numerous species of herons and waders, whilst gulls, terns and Ospreys are occasional visitors. Appropriate management and protection of the area could potentially increase species diversity considerably.

Mushere Forest (Dulu area of Kadim in Mushereland) has a total area of 40-50 square kilometers. The aim of this project is to provide effective protection for one of Northern Nigeria’s most severely threatened habitats: forest. The area has been selected because damage to the forest is less severe than in many other areas, and difficulty of access makes protection more feasible than elsewhere.
