SciDev.Net article on threat to Ebo Forest helps save endangered and rare species

The tropical Ebo Forest in Southwest Cameroon is known for its unique ecosystem and for being a home to endangered and rare species. However, in early 2020, the Cameroon government approved the creation of logging concessions in the forest. SciDev.Net published a story about the threat posed by the concessions to the communities and wildlife of the forest. By August 2020, the concessions had been cancelled. Local NGO Foder believes media attention, including SciDev.Net’s article, played an important role in this cancellation.
