#1879: The Makaya Project (fwd)
From: Max Blanchet <MaxBlanchet@worldnet.att.net>
I would appreciate it if Mr. Paryski
would tell us about the Makaya Project.
As I understand it, it has involved the
creation of a national park with the assistance
of the US Government to salvage the flora
and fauna of Makaya.
In 1957, my cousin and I visited the Pik
Makaya in the company of two American
botanists looking for lichens.
It was quite a hike - probably more than 24 hours -
The experience was "féerique" or enchanting.
Most impressive site!
Of course that was before the extensive deforestation
that took place under François and Jean-Claude
