LUKMEF Cameroon commemorates World Wildlife Day 2019

The current trends of coastal and marine resource depletion in Cameroon remain worrying in recent times as a result, pollution and onslaught marine wildlife exploitation amongst communities in Cameroon. The resources of the sea have been over-harvested by humans, threatening marine biodiversity. The consequences of over-fishing and habitat destruction are evident in many parts of the world and may have already damaged the marine ecosystem irreversibly. Now that the effects of over-fishing, ocean acidification and climate change are better understood, it is critical that marine species are protected to secure their survival and maintain the ecosystem services they provide.

Mindful of the above situation, LUKMEF Cameroon within the framework of its initiative to celebrate World Wildlife Day 2019, in collaboration with MINEPDED SWR MINFOF SWR, IYEC Limbe, CADEF Limbe, GREEN Cameroon Buea, carried out weeklong activities to raise awareness in communities on the importance of marine wildlife to man and the environment in order to combat marine plastic pollution and onslaught exploitation of marine wildlife for an inclusive community sustainable development agenda.
