Sepik Wetlands Management Area faced with challenges

SWMA was formed in 1998 as a community-based organisation (CBO) in Ambunti, East Sepik Province and registered with the Investment Promotion Authority.

It is the only conservation CBO that is involved in the protection of the pristine mighty Sepik River, the wetland resources and population of over 500,000 people living along the Sepik River. 

SWMA officer Jerry Wana revealed at the a consultative workshop on Protected Areas underway this week in Port Moresby that they’re faced with limited funding to undertake some of SWMI’s work.
