Margaret and other Kia women in the Union underwent conservation training conducted by Nature Conservancy leaders like Willie Atu (seen here at left).
In learning about environmental issues, the mothers rededicated their efforts to protect Barora Faa and Kia’s future generations by demonstrating against a new logging proposal.
Their battle was successful, preserving—for now, at least—the resources that will help children like these grow and protect Kia’s way of life.
Margaret feels good about that—but she knows there’s more work to be done, in Kia and throughout Solomon Islands. By donating to The Nature Conservancy, you can help us implement projects that help both people and nature.
