"Ethiopia’s Honey Forest: People And Wildlife Living In Sweet Harmony"

"The Gura Ferda forest in southwest Ethiopia is a beautiful example of a forest and local people living in harmony, says biodiversity and protected area specialist Julian Bayliss.

Bayliss, who recently returned from surveying Gura Ferda, has spent more than three decades working in forest environments across Africa and says the forest stands out.

“It is the most important forest in Ethiopia, if not the East African region, as it is a rare example of such a forest in its size and condition,” he says. “It’s one of the most intact Afromontane forests I have visited.”"
