African Union of Conservationists (AUC) has a plan for biodiversity conservation interventions in the rapidly growing mining industrial development in the areas of Albertine Rift. It is being proactive in addressing of what can go terribly wrong when environmental protection safeguards are ignored in the production of mining industries in Uganda. This will contribute to ensuring that the Albertine region avoids the negative experiences.
We are a pan African conservation and advocacy organization established to be the biggest Union of Conservationists to champion conservation mainly focused on development integration and their effects to Africa with a special emphasis currently on information sharing and research on ecosystems of African region. AUC was born of the desire to contribute to the surprising sadden growing drastic rapid environmental changes by bringing in actual experiences from African governments, ministries, institutions, departments academics and researchers through researching and documenting the effects potential or actual of development challenges in Africa. It is an independent nongovernment organization and mandated to work and promote contemporary conservation activities, facilitate joint work with local NGOs, CBOs, CSOs, local authorities, governments among its members.

When I travel across Africa I see a lot of exposed terrains without vegetative covers, even in the cities and I wonder if anyone cares about the soil losses due to erosion from these barren terrains and the chain adverse consequencies on the fishes and other bio-organisms when the sediments from these exposed terrains reach rivers and other water bodies.
Raymond, I wish you success in your noble endeavor.
