Travelers Giving Back

Guassa Community Conservation Area is managed by the Guassa Community Council. These Guassa-user and management communities live in nine kebeles (farmers associations) adjacent to the Guassa Area. The GCCA Tourism Association members also belong to the Guassa Community Conservation Council and have been selected to oversee the tourism development and share the benefits of the income generated by tourism with the wider community.

All money generated by tourism activities goes to supporting conservation in the Guassa Area, helping the development of tourism in the area and supporting the Community Development Fund. Donations can be given on site or through the Frankfurt Zoological Society website (www.zgf.de), earmarked for the Guassa Area.
