Webinar: Bamboo for Conservation of Endangered Species
Theme: Bamboo and Environmental Management
Bamboos are widely distributed across Asia, the Americas and Africa, covering an area of over 30 million hectares. They are an integral part of forest ecosystems. A number of the world’s most iconic and endangered species rely on bamboos for their survival, including the giant panda, the red panda, the mountain gorilla, the Bale Mountains vervet (also called “bale monkeys”) and certain types of lemur. This session will discuss the role of bamboo in conserving endangered species.
