During their visit to ITFC Emmanuel Akampulira made presentation on the TEAM activities in Bwindi. He particularly focused on the progress of TEAM and the important milestones that have been made since the inception of TEAM in Bwindi.  They were impressed how much TEAM had achieved especially in showing the trends of biodiversity in Bwindi. They observed that most of the data has not be analyzed by ITFC. They thought it would be important for ITFC, CI and WCS to work together to conduct simple analyses that could benefit UWA and other partners.
