Gabon is home to Africa's largest forest elephant population, with about 60% of those that remain. Local extinctions of the forest elephant means losing their role as gardeners of the forest, they are essential for seed dispersal and the germination of canopy tree species. Besides our main activity as nature tour operator, Gabon Adventure Tours is fighting to preserve this critically endangered wildlife species.

Too, It’s our duty to take actions when the villagers are suffering about elephants raiding their crops which are essential for the sustainability of the community. As a direct effect if nothing is done, a significant amount of elephants are more and more being killed by local hunting.

In North Gabon, many villages have their crops devastated mainly during the rainy seasons from March to May and from September to November. Our project is divided into three stages, the first one consist in data collection, the second step is to educate the villagers and sensibilized the hunters then the last step consist on setting up some mitigations methods such as barriers and deterrents to protect 5000 crops in 200 villages in North Gabon.
