Vision, Mission & Philosophy

Our Vision

To conserve the bio-diversity and ecosystem health of Mgahinga and Bwindi protected areas in harmony with the development needs of the surrounding communities.

Our Mission

To foster conservation of bio-diversity in Mgahinga and Bwindi protected areas through investment in community development projects, grants for research and ecological monitoring, funding park management and protection, and programmes that create greater conservation awareness.


BMCT recognizes that people are an important part of any ecosystem. It further, recognizes that without healthy and economically secure communities around Bwindi and Mgahinga protected areas, the area remains under threat from grazing, hunting and such vices. In response, BMCT uses a unique approach of conservation through community development to achieve its vision. BMCT works to improve the quality of life in park surrounding communities by providing education, health services, safe water, vocational training and sustainable resource use skills in this impoverished and most densely populated region in Uganda.
