Equatorial Guinea: No Borders On Conservation


A documentary will soon be released to help The dril.

Malabo, Equatorial Guinea (I-Newswire) October 25, 2012 - A documentary will soon be released to help The drill (Mandrillus leucophaeus). The dril is a species of primate family Cercopithecidae. It is one of the most endangered primate species in the world. This primate can be seen on Biko Island.

Bioko Biodiversity Protection Program (BBPP), a jointly administered program with the Universidad Nacional de Guinea Ecuatorial (UNGE), have steered conservation efforts to protect this primate and others.

The Dril Project was created to produce a documentary in Spanish to be given free of charge to Equatorial Guinea's television network (EGTV) to be aired for public viewing. In addition, the film will be shown locally in schools, villages and embassies. These screenings will also be combined with conservation presentations and workshops working closely with individuals and communities. This conservation film will be made in tandem with the international documentary using much of the same footage and interviews.

Primates are increasingly becoming a major ecotourism attraction, and primate-watching is growing in interest and serving as a key source of livelihood in many local communities living around protected areas in which these species occur. It is increasingly being recognized that forests make a major contribution in terms of ecosystem services for people, providing drinking water, food and medicines.

The documentary was supported with a grant from the U.S. Embassy in Malabo. The Spirit of Malabo, a recently launched eco-tourism company based in New York, will soon book tours to explore this primate and others on Biko Island. For more information, visit facebook.com/spiritofmalabo.
