The Ambassador of the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS), former Cameroon international football player, Patrick Mboma is in Libreville since 1st September, to raise awareness about horrors of poaching.
The former international football player turned into a goodwill ambassador to promote the efforts of the community to fight against the phenomenon of poaching. He relies on his fame to create a significant impact and intends to meet with the country's authorities, as well as financial and technical partners of the project, business leaders and civil society leaders to have their support in the management, protection and sustainable development of biodiversity as a whole. This is particularly to support the fight against elephant poaching, a specie which plays a crucial role in the ecosystem.
Patrick Mboma will visit the Loango and Lope parks to see these elephants for which he fights. The tour will end on September 10.
