Since 1997, The Kasiisi Project has supported the conservation of Uganda’s Kibale National Park by supporting communities dedicated to protecting and stewarding their lands, waters and wildlife. With nearly half of Uganda’s population under age 15, young people have a significant role to play in preserving the country's natural resources, both now and in the future. Our program primarily targets the 8,000 children attending 16 forest-edge primary schools. By fostering a connection between education and conservation, we are informing and inspiring a new generation of Ugandan conservationists.

Recently, conservationists have explored the use of beehive fences as a humane and eco-friendly way to protect crops from elephants. "The Kasiisi Project is the first and currently only program in Africa (that bee in the middle of the map is us!) to join Broodminders – the Citizen Science Project that seeks to monitor hive conditions all over the world. Broodminders are placed in the hives and constantly record temperature and humidity. This information is regularly downloaded onto tablets and then uploaded to the cloud, where it becomes available to everyone engaged in the project. We have installed Broodminders in hives on our farm and have partnered with Bee Keeping for Human-Elephant Conflict Mitigation and Rural Income Enhancement Project to also monitor conditions in the forest edge hives that make up one of their elephant deterring beehive fences."
