After spending nearly a week visa hunting in Yaounde, Cameroon, I left the capital of Cameroon and headed towards Gabon. Now, leaving I had no idea if I could even get into Gabon by securing a visa at the border, but I figured it was worth a try. First, I stopped at a place called Ape Action Africa in Mefou, Cameroon just an hour scooter drive out Yaounde. I spent then night there and explored the wildlife sanctuary which is home to gorillas, chimpanzees, and monkeys. After checking out the site, I cruised towards Gabon and was thrilled to be let into the country quite easily. All in all, these were a couple really good days of travel, and after the troubles of the past couple weeks, it was probably a good thing that was the case.

Documentary about the research of Czech herpetologists Václav Gvoždík and Matej Dolinay focused on frog evolution in Central Africa. In Cameroon there is an amazing diversity of species and some extraordinary frogs, such as the Goliath frog, the biggest frog with weight up to 3 kilograms. THIS FILM WAS CREATED DURING THE WORK ON A RESEARCH PROJECT FUNDED BY THE CZECH SCIENCE FOUNDATION (PROJECT GACR No. 15-13415Y).
Warning: Contains Graphic Images Over 300 elephants were killed between January and March 2012 when heavily-armed foreign poachers invaded Cameroon's Bouba N'Djida National Park. Entire elephant populations could be wiped out from Central Africa if ivory poaching and wildlife trade continue unabated. Tens of thousands of elephants are killed each year for their tusks which are in high demand in Asian black markets. Help WWF Stop Wildlife Crime!

“island of peace”; one of the most peaceful countries in the continent and themost peaceful in the region. This sometimes justifies the high rate of refugeeinflux in the country, since it’s ‘seemingly peaceful’ nature makes it the firstchoice for most refugees fleeing from wars in their countries. However, acritical analysis of this haven of peace, Cameroon, may transform this blinded perception into greater caution and ignite positive actions towards restoring andsafeguarding genuine and durable peace in the country.

This video contains images of hunting some viewers may find disturbing. Intrepid food writer Stefan Gates is in Cameroon to take a closer look at the issues surrounding illegal bush meat and the killing of endangered animals. Interesting video from BBC travel show 'Cooking in the Danger Zone'.
Today I visited the Limbe Wildlife Center in Limbe, Cameroon. It is run by the same people that operate the Pandrillus Drill Monkey sanctuary in Afi, Nigeria, so I thought I'd check it out. To be honest, the wildlife center is much more of a zoo that I had hoped. They do have large enclosures and they are rescue projects rather than captures, but I do hate seeing animals in tight quarters in the city. Still, it was a good experience and Limbe really is a nice city. The people are friendly, the town is laid back, and there is a beautiful waterfront. Oh, and it might also disappoint some people that I finally got a shave and a haircut in Limbe. I know that beard was getting pretty epic, but it had to go. Tomorrow, I explore Limbe, Cameroon a little bit more. Hope you stay tuned. For...

The North Carolina Zoo's commitment to wildlilfe extends far beyond its gates. One of the Zoo's most important conservation research projects operates in the western African nation of Cameroon. There, Zoo Chief Veterinarian Dr. Michael Loomis works with several NGO and government partners to study elephants and elephant habitat. The Zoo joined forces with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) in 1996 to study elephants in northern Cameroon. The project has grown since then to include studies in the southeast forests and on Mount Cameroon as well. Dr. Loomis and his colleagues have deployed satellite tracking collars on dozens of elephants. The data collected is then analyzed and visualized in order to better understand elephant movement patterns, habitat usage and other factors. With these data...
Thanks for watching, Please suscribe for more videos. WOW !!! Goliath Frog “the giant amphibians”in cameroon #Afrika About Channel Klik HERE http://bit.ly/1QTM0zO There’s no doubt that the goliath frog is aptly named. The species is the largest frog in the world, reaching up to 12.5 inches in length and 7.2 pounds in weight. The goliath frog is also facing a challenge befitting its namesake: habitat loss and over-harvesting have caused severe population declines in the three west African countries the frog inhabits – Cameroon, Gabon, and Equatorial Guinea. Goliath frogs live in small ranges in the rain forests at the equator of western Africa, near swift-moving rivers and waterfalls. These giant amphibians need to be near water much like the average frog. Goliath frogs come out at n...
This a partnership between Bristol Conservation and Science Foundation, Living Earth Foundation, Fondation Camerounaise de la Terre Vivante and the University of Bristol. The project will be located in the Western Periphery of Dja Biosphere Reserve in Cameroon. In Southeastern Cameroon, illegal hunting and trade in wildlife has important impacts on the livelihoods of the rural poor, providing both affordable sources of animal protein and livelihood opportunities for men as hunters and women as traders. However, poor communities living around the protected Dja Biosphere Reserve (DBR) feel that they are unfairly victimized by efforts to tackle illegal practices, whilst external traders, responding to growth market demand from urban areas and emerging development conurbations in the region, ...

From the rain forests of Cameroon, four helpless baby western lowlands gorillas were taken away after their mothers had been killed by poachers. The infant gorillas were later taken to Nigeria and kept in the Ibadan zoo. Documents were forged certifying that the four gorillas were born in the Ibadan zoo, thus making it possible for the four gorillas to be smuggled through South Africa to Malaysia. After several years they mysteriously ended up in South Africa at the National Zoological Gardens.

The Last of the Great Apes: In Cameroon there are fears that the practice of eating bushmeat - wild meat hunted in the rainforest, including endangered gorillas and chimpanzees - could trigger a global pandemic of viruses. To understand how the trade works, reporter Evan Williams travelled to the Dja Reserve in the south east of the country, where the tracks and clearings created by logging companies have opened up the once-impenetrable jungle to bushmeat poachers. Experts warn if hunting continues these animals could be wiped out in a generation. This episode was first aired on 25/05/2012.

In October 2012, the ATA Site Inspection Team visited the Limbe Wildlife Center (LWC), a wildlife rescue and rehabilitation project in the South West Region of Cameroon. The center was started in 1993 by the Pandrillus Foundation, a conservation NGO, and the Government of Cameroon. Since this time it has become home to a variety of critically endangered wildlife species including the ellioti chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes ellioti), the drill monkey (Mandrillus leucophaeus), the western lowland (Gorilla gorilla gorilla) and Cross River (G.g.diehli) gorillas, several species of long-tailed monkeys, including the locally endemic Preuss's guenon (Cercopithecus preussi), and various reptile and bird species. The center is a possible stop on the Host Country Tour day. To learn more visit http://www...
Walter Wilson Nana, VoicesofAfrica alumnus, Buea, Cameroon (5 November 2009) In their move to preserve natural forests by classifying certain areas as national parks, the World Wide Fund for Nature, WWF, and Cameroon's Ministry of Forest and Wildlife, MINFOF, have resolved to integrate indigenous people in the management and classification of forests in Cameroon. In this mobile report, two Cameroonian environment officials explain what the campaign is all about.
More protected areas are being created in the South west province to facilitate the control of illegal hunting and its associated trade. In the attempt to translate the Minister's policy on effective wildlife law enforcement into concrete field reality, Mrs. Mbah Grace ( The South West provincial Delegated for Forestry and Wildlife) with the strong support of her able provincial Chief of Forestry and Wildlife Control Brigade immediately designed a strategy to fight against illegal wildlife trade in South West province.
