wildlife protection game

Besong Bachelet Egbe – Community Mobilisation aganst indescriminate killing of wild life

My project is aimed at educating communities on Wildlife protection. The use of wired snares by hunters is becoming almost unbearable as dead animals are discovered every day in the bushes. This has become a threat to wildlife and if nothing is done to stop this our future generation will not know animals. I believe our community’s mentality could be changes through education and introduction of alternative sources of livelihood. My project will create awareness in the community and form a forest management committee of ex-hunters who will engage in the tracking and destruction of animal traps. in the long run we shall also engage the ex-hunters in alternative livelihood improvement activities.
