Subject: [HOT] Work begins on Mapping Africa's Protected Areas


Hi All

I am please to announce that work has begun on Mapping Africa's Protected Areas. The first two National Parks selected for mapping are Serengeti National Park (Task 834 <http://tasks.hotosm.org/project/834> ) and Niokolo-Koba National Park (Task 721 <http://tasks.hotosm.org/project/721> ).


As many of you are aware, Africa's National Parks, Nature Reserves and Game Reserves are an important and sustainable sources of foreign currency, jobs and upliftment in many countries on the African continent. Your assistance in mapping protected areas will help support tourism activity and therefore the surrounding communities.


For more information on the list of reserves to be mapped, please visit:
