The nature

The power of one, perhaps the most surprising aspect of nature is the power of one. Each living species has a key role in nature. As such, each of us can help save our mother nature.

Accordingly, the Association Djibouti Nature standpoint is that effective nature conservation can only be achieved through sound connection between people and nature.

Association Djibouti Nature/BirdLife International Partner, is a registered independent, not-for-profit and membership-based non-governmental organisation in Djibouti. Its mission is to contribute the conservation efforts, sustainable management and appreciation of nature and to improve the livelihoods of people in Djibouti. To achieve this, Djibouti Nature works with local communities, government bodies and other prominent stakeholders to raise awareness and highlight the protection of the country’s natural inheritance for the benefit of present and future generations.

As BirdLife International Partner, Djibouti Nature acts as the leading authority on Djibouti’s avifauna. As such, its work concentrates in priority on Globally Threatened Species and Key Biodiversity Sites like the Critically Endangered Djibouti Francolin, the only endemic bird species in Djibouti and the Forêt du Day (an Important bird and biodiversity area-IBAs) which is the main stronghold of this species, but also on other threatened species, such as Livistona carinensis, Dracaena ombet, Egyptian vulture, etc…. Djibouti Nature also preserves, remains an active civil society organisation and demonstrates its commitment to nature conservation and people livelihoods improvement almost 14 years later from its establishment in 1999.
