The Last Great Ape organization
The Last Great Ape organization encourages the capture of dealers in meat and products of endangered species and bringing them to justice. Then exposes the fact that the law is enforced and by that deters poachers and dealers from getting into this commercial business, educates the public, gives the bushmeat trade the deserved status of a criminal activity, and introduces a concept to the Cameroonian public – Wildlife Crime.
The Last Great Ape is the first specialized Law Enforcement NGO in the
sub-region. It focuses on threatened species, and mainly on the dealers,
the primary generators of the illegal bushmeat business, the ivory trade
and the pet trade.
INTELLIGENCE – Investigators, undercover agents and informers gather precise information so that dealers in meat and the products of threatened species can be arrested in the act, producing concrete evidence for the courts.
The pilot test project on active wildlife law enforcement and independent wildlife monitoring in Cameroon in 2003 was initiated and carried out by LAGA in collaboration with MINEF.
The collaboration yielded the first-ever prosecution and prison sentence for a wildlife law violator in Cameroon. It was also a first for most of forest Africa.
