The partnership agreement signed between FEDEC and the Granby Zoo aims to strengthen actions to conserve and enhance the resources of the Campo-Ma’an National Park (CMNP). Hence the project entitled “Gorilla and Elephant Conservation Initiative at CMNP” has been implemented since January 2018.
Despite the current health situation, the Granby Zoo has continued to support project activities in 2021 by allocating a budget of approximately 20,000 Canadian dollars. New beehives have been installed in the villages of Nkoelon and Nyamabandé. Ecological monitoring activities are carried out as well as monitoring of areas of particular interest in the park. Knowledge of the population dynamics of the CMNP’s mammals will be improved and will help park managers to make effective and efficient decisions.
