Community Engagement Key to Success of Kilum-Ijim Forest Conservation Initiative

In a remarkable display of community engagement, over 300 members of the Oku community in Cameroon have come together to plant 2500 native trees in the threatened Kilum-Ijim forest reserve. The initiative, funded by the Oku Cultural and Development Association (OCDA USA), aims to promote the conservation of the forest and its endangered biodiversity under the theme “Conservation of Our Green and Natural Heritage.”
