"Okala successfully completed a large-scale social, carbon and biodiversity monitoring programme over three years to evaluate the feasibility of transforming a 300,000 hectare logging concession into a sustainable landscape"

"Okala delivered high-quality biodiveristy accounting in just six months across the entire landscape. Their work will allow us to calculate the biodiversity value of the forest in preparation for issuing credits on the voluntary market"
Professor Katharine Abernethy
Professor in Tropical Ecology
"Okala has enabled me to understand and follow mammal populations across my farm, particularly deer species, and how these populations evolve over the year. This means I can react and adapt my ungulate regulations policy to maintain a healthy population while limiting their impact on my agricultural crops.
