An endangered Grauer's swamp warbler ,so far found in the restricted range of swamps of Burundi,Rwanda and easten part of DRC,was recently mistnetted at one of valley swamps of Kibira National Park called Mwokoa.
The bird was caught during a field work as part of the project on implementing and monitoring an adaptive management framework for climate change in the Albertine rift implemented in Burundi.
The field work took place In January 2011 and the bird was caught in the net.
The bird currently faces many environmental threats as its habitat is under high pressure by the surrounding community looking mainly for raw materials for making mats for thatching.
At other valley swamps on the park, agriculture is growing and seriously a problem. Urgent conservation measures Is need on the valley and the swamps.
Lets hope this will not be a other species that will be lost...
