A team comprised of technical experts from USFS and AMCFE worked in‐country with counterparts and important stakeholders including Office Malien du Tourisme et de l’Hôtellerie (OMATHO), Projet de Conservation et de Valorisation de la Biodiversité du Gourma et des Eléphants (PCVBG‐E), other local, regional, and national government representatives, local and international NGO’s, community associations and local community leaders, local teachers, and travel agencies from March 1 ‐10, 2010. The team examined the feasibility of bird‐viewing tourism in the area, and gained insight from local populations and government. During the mission, the USFS team members’ travel was restricted by the US Embassy due to security concerns. In some cases, the information presented in this report was gleaned from informational interviews conducted outside of the Gourma of key stakeholders who live/work in the Gourma Region; in some cases, the information presented here‐in represents the findings of the AMCFE team member who traveled alone to the Gourma Region (Douentza, Hombori, Dimamou, Gossi, Inadiatfane, Banzena, Boni and Mondoro .)
