The Campo Ma'an National Park in Cameroon covers 264,000 ha. This is 5 times the size of the Island of Montreal.
Within its tropical rainforest is hidden a diversity of primates, among them chimpanzees, gorillas and mandrills. Elephants, leopards, pangolins and hundreds of winged and scaled species can also be found there.
" 700 gorillas and 400 elephants in a precarious situation"
The Granby Zoo's mandate is to better understand the movements of the animals, prevent poaching and conflicts with farmers, raise awareness of the 110 communities living on the periphery of the protected zone, and collaborate in the start up of an eco-tourism initiative in respect with the Park's conservation mission.
The Granby Zoo has signed a 5-year partnership agreement aimed at highlighting the protection and awareness missions, then the establishment of an ecotourism initiative at the Campo Ma'an National Park in southern Cameroon. Learn more on this project.
