AIFE-Uganda is participating in the ‘”Save Murchison Falls” Campaign to stop the proposed Dam construction on Murchison Falls which will threaten existence of Wildlife in Murchison Falls National Park.

To date, Murchison Falls National Park has been known for its namesake waterfall and the many species that call this area home. But a private company is attempting to build a hydroelectric plant along the river that feeds the falls, which would be a serious and significant blow to the area and to the tourism industry so important to Uganda’s economy.

Opposition to this plan is growing in Uganda. We must add our voices to stop it.

OUR STATEMENT

“The addition of the newly proposed power plant to energy extraction operations already planned would be a serious and significant blow to Uganda’s largest national park, its iconic and threatened wildlife, and the tourism industry at the heart of Uganda’s domestic economy,” said Tim Tear, Executive Director of the WCS Africa Program.
