Gishwati Mukura Forest is a protected reserve in the north-western part of Rwanda, not far from Lake Kivu. (Gishwati Mukura National Park) or The reserve’s forests were largely intact in 1978, and substantial forest cover still remained in 1986. During the Rwandan genocide, wave after wave of refugees arrived in Gishwati Mukura Forest and began clearing it, often for subsistence farming. By 2001, only a small circular patch of native forest remained 1,500 acres (6.1 km2) of the forest’s original 250,000. In addition to the tremendous loss of biodiversity, the region experiences soil erosion and degradation, and landslides. Reforestation efforts in the past few years have increased the remnant native forest to about 2,500 acres (10 km2). Large tea estates occupy the central and northern parts of the reserve.
