‘I Had Direct Observation of Three Chimps in Tofala’

Since childhood, I have been dreaming of going to the rainforest to observe wildlife in their natural habitat. This dream heightened when I saw the critical situation of chimpanzees living in the Jane Goodalls Chimp Eeden Rehabilitation Center in South Africa during a visit in 2016. So I went online, researched and decided to join this volunteering program. In Cameroon, I was very much welcome by the Environment and Rural Development Foundation (ERuDeF) staff.

Most if not, all global decisions taking to conserve the environment, men dominate the actors to women. Conversely, women are more committed in protecting the environment. According to the United Nation Environmental Programme (UNEP) publication on Gender equity and the Environment, Women do seem to be better attuned to the needs of the environment, and more committed to protecting it, than men.

« My Trip to Tofala ; Challanging but Exciting »

Wildlife conservation has always been my passion although my profession had nothing to do whit it. My first contact with gorillas and African Rainforest was in late 2004 when I spent three weeks evaluating an environmental program co financed by the European Union in Gabon. I was impressed by this experience and did know I wanted to repeat it. So once retired at my sixties I had the time and resources to volunteer on gorillas’ conservation.
