Protect freshwater ecosystems
Bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the west, the Gamba protected area complex hosts two wetlands of international importance: Petit-Loango and Setté-Cama (the largest sport fishing spot in Gabon).
Similarly, the beaches and coastal waters are privileged places for the reproduction of several marine species such as leatherback and olive ridley turtles, or humpback whales.
Why is it important?
They also allow population mobility because they are the main ways of connecting the villages to each other and to the city of Gamba.
These wetlands also host two lagoons that are important for fisheries resources because they constitute both feeding and reproduction areas for this resource.
Their misuse and poor enforcement of the regulatory framework can result in the degradation of marine and coastal ecosystems and the decline of marine biodiversity.
What is WWF doing?
In collaboration with local associations and communities, WWF is committed to the protection of marine turtles and the promotion of good practices in artisanal fishing.
