Tuissong forest

The Tuissong forest is a small land of 1 hectare of a degraded secondary forest located in a Tuissong’s village at 15 km from a big town, Yaoundé political capital of Cameroon. This land belongs to our Ecological Association and we bought from villagers to promote conservation awareness through ecotourism, environmental education and sensitization. In the village that such of forest became more and more scarce, forest are converse to farm. Certainly this forest has economic values but which is not really evaluated. People used to go there and gather firewood, forest product and so on… A river runs along the site. This small forest is a habitat for insect like butterflies; there are no more large animals.
