Protecting Elephants from Development Projects, Cameroon

There are approximately 250 forest elephants in the Ngoyla Wildlife Reserve. Even though this area is one of Central Africa’s largest habitats for large mammals, it is threatened by clearing, illegal harvesting, development for mining, and logging. This project will help preserve this habitat by marking and maintaining the boundaries of Ngoyla Wildlife Reserve, teach alternative livelihoods to local communities so they can focus on eco-tourism instead of wildlife crime, educate community members on the importance of wildlife and conservation, and maintain and monitor the Mbango clearing which is a component of an important elephant corridor in the region.
