ITF and new partner the Environment & Rural Development Foundation (ERuDeF) have agreed an exciting new initiative to protect the Lebialem Highlands/ Mt Bamboutos Montane Forest in Northern Cameroon. This is an extension of existing work which primarily aims to conserve the only remaining unprotected montane forest ecosystem in Cameroon. This area is one of the last remnants of habitat of the worlds most critically endangered primate, the Cross river Gorilla. The project will work with the communities that live around the forest to establish alternative sources of income and fuel wood, thereby reducing pressure on this precious and unique forest. We will be reporting back in the coming months, please look out for it.
