Cameroon's government want to open the Ebo Forest to logging, threatening endangered species

Cameroon’s government is again planning to open parts of Ebo Forest to logging. This will threaten 200,000 hectares of forest that is home to several rare and endangered species including gorillas and chimpanzees.
The same portion of Ebo was briefly opened for logging in 2020, but the government reversed course after criticisms.
We cannot allow governments to threaten rich ecosystems. We don't have time for more deforestation.

                  How would the Cameroon government consciously give a leeway to forest degradation,destruction of vital ecosystems and biodiversity loss since that's what opening of Ebo forest means?

                        Wouldn't want to imagine what happened in Kenya after logging ban was lifted,so much destruction was made within a very short time,it's high time leaders should embrace the reality that we need to care for our forests more than ever before.

                          Climate change should now be expected to affect Cameroon's climatic zones differently, and extreme weather events will be more frequent and intense.

                            Hard to argue that the Cameroon government should act with more integrity and foresight than, for example, the current UK regime.

                              We need all the trees - especially in complex ecosystems like this.

                                @Christina_Carlmark Many of these trees, especially the mature ones, provide a range of ecosystem services that are difficult to replace in the short term.

                                    This is so unwise. Kenya also recently lifted the ban on logging and that spells doom for the initiated reforestation, protection and conservation efforts.It's time to save not to devour the forests.
