“Young generation in Africa are the future and they carry the responsibility of protecting the environment”, said Mr. Gilbert, OIPA Representative.

In most African countries and Cameroon in particular, hunting and animal mistreatment occur every thirty minutes which is a call for concern. The Government of Cameroon has been doing all it can to protect the wild, but their messages are limited within cities and urban areas. Meanwhile hunting and animals mistreatment happen in rural and remote areas.

Farmed and domestic animals suffer every day because their owners have little or no knowledge about animals welfare and protection. Furthermore, there is no law to protect the rights of domestic/farmed animals. Thousands of wild animals like elephants, chimpanzees, antelopes are being killed and smuggled every day. This has put many wild animals at the verge of extinction and environment in great danger.
It is necessary to get Cameroonian involved in animals protection. For this to be effective, we must educate people in remote area and communities because they are the main contributors to animal abuse. People living in rural areas do not have access to any media organ nor know anything about protection and animal welfare.
Since 2012 OIPA is working to sensitize Cameroonians in remote areas on the need to protect and ensure the welfare of animals and their habitat in Cameroon. Many schools and communities have benefited from the initiative.
