National Campaign Continues:  Radio Spots and New Poster

The IDA-Africa “SOS” radio campaign, generously funded by the Arcus Foundation,

The English translation is:
“To kill, to capture, to sell, or to buy Chimpanzees and Gorillas is illegal. You risk a fine of 3,000,000-10,000,000 CFA ($5,500-$18,500) and a prison sentence of 1-3 years.”
continues to raise awareness and change attitudes about the great apes of Cameroon. The goal of the campaign is to help save wild populations by stigmatizing the killing, buying, selling, and eating of chimpanzees and gorillas. In 2003, the radio spots were broadcast in Cameroon’s East, South, Central and Littoral Provinces, as well as on national radio. In 2004, the campaign has been extended to a provincial station in the West Province. The spots are being broadcast twice a day on seven radio stations, alternating one month on and one month off. A four episode mini-drama, or radiophonique, is being broadcast during the “off” months in rural areas.

MTN, the multinational telephone company, funded a new IDA-Africa poster, designed by Isabel Martin and Laurent Souchal of the Caviar Company of France. The poster, being distributed in French-speaking Cameroon, features a picture of Bikol.


Thanks to the Volunteers

The Sanaga-Yong Chimpanzee Rescue Center employs 21 Cameroonian staff members. In addition, in February and August, three volunteers join the staff to live and work at the forest site. All volunteers, who stay a minimum of six months, speak conversational French, and most have experience working with Great Apes and living in a developing country.

Volunteers have served a vital role for the Sanaga-Yong Chimpanzee Rescue Center. The project employs three (only two in the earlier days) volunteers - so far from France, Spain, Holland, Switzerland, England, Canada, Cameroon, and the United States - at any given time.

They serve the project for a minimum of six months, and work seven days a week from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm, helping manage all aspects of the project. Some also assist with sensitization/education outreach in villages and schools. In addition, they alternate giving midnight feedings to infant chimpanzees, and during rainy season, all are often awakened in the night to help the staff defend against ant invasions.

Working as a volunteer at the Sanaga-Yong Center is a difficult, tiring job, and volunteers often complain of fatigue. But for those people who connect emotionally with the chimpanzees, these friendships are extremely rewarding. Some volunteers have come back a second time.

In addition to the managerial/education volunteers, the project also has benefited from a number of talented people who have come from one to six months to work on “special projects”.

All of us at IDA-Africa extend our heartfelt appreciation to all of you who have made the Sanaga-Yong Chimpanzee Rescue Center a success. We couldn’t have done it without you. Merci infiniment pour votre travail.
