One of the greatest successes in the field of ecosystem restoration is the Akka-Goun forest in Mali. This ecosystem which had been totally destroyed by drought and human pressure was restored through a fruitful collaboration between IUCN-Mali, Wetlands International and local communities. Because of this action, Akka forest has become one of the largest sites for migratory birds in Mali and West Africa. This success story is told in an interview with a local community member.
