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.
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!

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, ...
“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.

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...
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...

Chester Zoo has been supporting conservation work in Gashaka Gumti National Park, Nigeria, since 1994. The park is a biodiversity hot-spot, and is the home to a huge variety of wonderfully diverse wildlife, including probably the last viable population of the Cameroon-Nigeria chimpanzee sub-species. The Gashaka Biodiversity Project, led by Chester Zoo, aims to protect the forest and the diverse fauna and flora living within it. Camera traps set up by our Gashaka Biodiversity Project have captured this footage. How many of the animals can you identify?

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...
