Lekki Urban Forest and Animal Sanctuary Initiative (LUFASI) is an NGO dedicated as an urban hub where people can connect to and interact with nature in Nigeria.
LUFASI sits on 20 hectares of land at the Majek area (Km 41) along the Lekki-Epe Express Way. It houses species like the Ekki “Iron Wood” tree (Lophira Alata), the critically endangered Hooded Vulture (Necrosyrtes Monachus) and the African Pied Hornbill (Tockus fasciatus).
The vegetation consists of pocket habitats of swamp forest and oil-palm plantation with large manicured garden spaces and pond-side landscapes for recreation and celebrations.
LUFASI is driven by the mission to conserve native biodiversity, educate about Climate Change and the natural environment, and collaborate with the wider community of stakeholders
