Site summary
Despite the importance and the resouces that can be obtained form Nabajjuzzi, the wetland faces a lot of pressures. The pressures are in form of hunting of sitatunga and collection of Grey Crowned Crane eggs. Others are brick making, paddocking, bush burning, tree planting and cultivation which are mostly in Buwunga Sub County. Settlement, waste disposal, car washing and effluents from tannery factory are common threats. The conservation of the wetland and the education of the communities is highly encouraged.
