The year 2016 was one of alarming revelations and remarkable successes for WWF Cameroon. We made some significant contributions to conservation in Cameroon in particular, Congo Basin and the world as a whole. Census carried out in 2015 to re-evaluate the state of wild- life covering a total 3,376,700 ha, sho- wed that the population of gorillas and chimpanzees are relatively stable, while elephant population has decreased by up to 75% between 2006 and 2015 in some priority landscapes (TNS and TRIDOM). This reflects the overall decreasing elephant population in the Congo Basin which declined by 62% between 2002 and 2011. This disquieting situation is caused by the wanton killing of elephants for ivory.

 

 

At this rate, if not effectively checked through a robust change of strategic intervention, government collaboration, trans- boundary synergy in checking wildlife crime, in the next 10 years there may be no more elephants in the Congo Basin.

 

 

The massacre of elephants demonstrates partly how exponential increase in human activities continues to threaten the survival of the planet and its biodiversity. WWF 2016 Living Planet Report announces the ‘Anthropocene era,’ where humans, rather than natural forces are the primary drivers of planetary change.
