The current project of WPE now is the opening of the WPE nursery to creat a base for young trees to be bread before executing our tree planting projects such as the green school project that’s also going on now. This garden will for it beginning contain between 500 and 1000 trees before future expansion. The whole WPE staff is working hard to realise this fontain of trees which will be a real solution to the problem of purchasing trees each time a project arise. The garden is situated at Tsinga-Olinga precisely called Derriere la Foire and deep down the humid stream.
PROJET « REVERDIE LE SAHEL »
Le projet « reverdie le sahel » est un projet développé depuis des longues dates par W.P.E et qui attend encore son réalisation faute des moyens mais nous comptons reprendre ce projet au cours de cette année 2011-2016 grâce peut être a votre participation et votre contribution. Le projet « Reverdie le Sahel » consiste à planter dix milles arbres dans la région du sahel où l’avancement du désert s’intensifie de plus en plus. Nous comptons recueillir des fonds nécessaire pour nous procréer des arbres supplémentaires sur ce qu’un nous disposons dans notre pépinière. La région que nous espérons lancer ce projet est la région d’Adamaoua (N’Gaoundéré) avant d’étendre dans les régions de l’extrême nord et le nord du Cameroun.
Donnons les moyens aux sahéliens de vivre ! L’afforestation de cette région est une étape capitale pour assurer la survie de cette région et ses peuples. Avec WPE, vos contributions seront distribuer ou utiliser pour la cause et vous aurez les détailles sur les rapports. Regardez sur notre fenêtre à travers notre site notre article sur le sahel sur http://www.wolfgangwpe.wordpress.com mais vous pouvez visiter notre rubrique en anglais sur http://www.wildplanetecoproject.org et contactez nous sur « firstname.lastname@example.org. Vous pouvez aussi regarder sur le fenêtre « Project » pour découvrir d’autres projets en voie de réalisation

2.PROJECT FOR THE AMELIORATION OF FARMING METHODS IN THE NORTH WEST PROVINCE.
The north west province of Cameroon is a grass field region and very much suitable for market gardening agriculture. The farming methods applied for agriculture here are numerous and amongst are some of the dangerouse forms of agriculture around the world which have heavy negative impact both to the farmers, to the land, its living organisms and most particularly the environment.This particular form of farming method is the clear and burn method locally known as “ankarra”.
This is all about the cutting of heaps(grass and trees) exposed for dryness then gathered in to furrows and covered with ground for burning to obtain a yellowish ashes which is rich in sulphuric nutrients suitable for plants to grow well and faster. After a very short while say three months the nutrients disappeared and the ground remains bare with very low chances to one day regain its fertilities reasons being;
– The ground doesn’t allow any other plants to grow to permit the soil regain its fertilities given that all the nutrients have been consumed by the first cultivation.
-The soil is very much acidic to the bacterial and insects that burrow to permit oxidation of the soil and as such the soil remains death and vague and with the absence of these organisms in the soil there stand very little chances to regain its fertilities.
-The soil became very much exposed to agents of erosion such as wind and water. Also during this process tons of smokes are discharged in to the atmosphere and contribute greatly to the process of the warming of the planet leading to climate change.
As such we intend through a research plan to reach this problem and attempt for solutions which will be much more local. We intend through your assistance to combat this problem via sensitization and a video report coverage on the field, to expose the ills of this farming method. Our mission consist primary of attending to some of these communities that do practice this farming method, meet the local farmers, organise local forums with the authorities, get to the fields, identify the problem from past cultivations then organise a media sensitizing tour. The goal will also be seeking solutions such as other forms of farming without degrading the soil and the atmosphere, farming with respect to the environment such as farming using manure from either dung or compose from plants.
This will not be successful without your contribution and your help, if this problem is not reached at, the future of agriculture in this region will soon be a menace so let’s fight on all spheres to protect our soil, our agriculture and our planet from destruction.
Proper education and awareness is an important aspect of our interaction with nature.
One has to recall that even in the West recognition of the value for preserving nature is fairly recent. It only makes sense, to cultivate this awareness with the children in school. Therefore, one of the main focuses of the WPE projects is sensitization & education.
Environmental Education in conjunction with media such as music, theater, radio plays and more.
Awareness about the bushmeat and pet trade.
Animal rescues, investigations for the detection of illegal Animal- and Bushmeat traders.
Projects in planning
Orphanage for wild animals
Socially responsible Eco-tourism
General promotion of projects with the topic Nature and Environment.
Setting up of socially responsible Eco tourism creates employments and brings foreign currency in the country. This creates a better understanding to the population of the importance of nature, thus ensuring that nature is protected which makes a better place for all to live.
In many countries, it has proven beneficial, to provide funds for farmers to compensate for the distruction of rice fields and other agricultural areas, by elephants, apes or wild boars. Another part of the program is, consulting farmers regarding breeding and upbringing of farm animals and the optimization of their harvests.
In the same context, another key element is the education of the local people, regarding the consumption of Bushmeat and the associated poaching and butchering.
