Cameroon has one of the most diverse ranges of plant and animal species of any country in the world. Food security and simple provision of needs for impoverished families has led to the destruction of forests and animals in Cameroon. The Limbe Wildlife Centre is a wildlife rescue and rehabilitation project. It is home to a variety of critically endangered wildlife species. It has an extensive conservation and outreach program educating local communities about sustainability and the effects of bush meat practices.
In 2007 I traveled to Cameroon, West Africa with a group of organizations working with the Born Free Foundation. The work involved documentation of programs and overseeing the arrival and distribution of international supplies to the Limbe Wildlife Centre and the Destitute Children’s Village, a small orphanage in Batoke.
