I am working for adama city adminstrationhere in Oromia regional state in Ethiopia.I am attending international Environmental law of course .But my ecological science understanding should be better.That becouse I have a beautiful ecological research project on very amusinf and miraclious bird in my sarounding. The small bird named muke,supplies the local community information where wild honey is located in the forest,holes in the rocks and in the caves where indivisuals can not easly find it.The histry is wide.THe problem is that plus to the very low in number in the ecosystem by nature ,the bird muke is under the shadow of extenct becouse of rapid defforestation and habitit lose.Fuilre in understandingv among the ecologist and environmentalist in Ethiopia and the saronding is an other problem .My intention is to make the bird publisized,conserved and promote the ecological and informative economics the the endangered birb.
