Nouabalé-Ndoki National Park Monthly update
Please, find attached here below the last edition of Nouabalé Ndoki National Park's newsletter in 2017.
It has been a very productive year for the Park Management Unit with its many great successes that we are extremely proud of, and some minor disappointments from which our team has been able to draw lessons.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our donors, partners and collaborators - without you our work would not be possible. Thank you for your support, and for standing with us for the wildlife and people of the Nouabalé-Ndoki landscape.
We hope this year will bring you all happiness, health and success, and we look forward to another year of working together.
