Mabira forest specifically to establish the role played by the community in conservation of
natural resources, factors which impend community involvement in conservation, challenges to
conservation and solutions for proper conservation. The study involved secondary sources of
data where the research related her study to different author’s work and authentication and
afterwards she made conclusions. The study used a survey design to get an estimation of the
respondents’ views in regard to the objectives of the study. The target population was
government officials, NGOs, local people and local leaders. The study therefore used a sample of
200 respondents from a target population of 1000 through use of Slovene’s formula. It employed
