As part of the process to know and make known Rwanda’s biodiversity, scientific research is of great importance for ACNR and its conservation efforts. Our staff, consisting of biologists, ecologist and environmental engineers, frequently sets forth to explore Rwanda’s natural heritage in every detail, be it in the form of a biodiversity census at a project site, which is often necessary to establish a decent action plan, or studies of individual ACNR members. ACNR researchers put a particular emphasis on Rwandan Important Bird Areas (IBAs) – as bird life is one of the most authentic indicators for the general condition of an ecosystem.
