Nigerian Conservation Foundation (NCF), the foremost environmental NGO in Nigeria dedicated to nature conservation and sustainable development embarks on waste management advocacy campaign activities in 20 communities in Eti-Osa Local Government Area, Lagos State. NCF received Aspire Coronation Trust (ACT) Foundation grant to advocate for actions that promote proper waste separation, management and disposal in selected communities of Lagos State, geared towards making our environment sustainable and habitable for future generation. ACT Foundation established in 2016 is a grant making non-profit organisation hinged on four pillars: Health, Entrepreneurship, Environment and Leadership. In 2017, 22 NGOs including NCF benefitted from the first grant cycle of the Foundation. The selected communities are Sangotedo, Idado, Gbara, Elegushi, Iru/Victoria Island, Agungi, Olugborogan, the host community to NCF, among others. The project will be carried out over a period of six months, commencing from September 2017. It has been divided into 5 major phases: Community Entry; Community & School Sensitisation; Clean up Exercise; Monitoring & Evaluation; and Post Project Supervision.
The call by the Nigerian Conservation Foundation (NCF), for the restoration of Nigeria’s forest cover to at least 25% through the Green Recovery Nigeria (GRN) is beginning to gain momentum and support from both the public and private sectors in the country. In a bid to nip the gloomy but probable prediction that Nigeria’s landscape may wear a semblance devoid of forest cover over the next 30 years, NCF has, through the GRN Initiative, a multistakeholder platform for re-greening the nation’s landscape, enjoined all and sundry to engage in aggressive tree planting and responsible forest management to assuage the consequences of a desert experience. In response to the call, Anamelo Forest Concession Limited (AFCL), has launched a community engagement and tree planting programme in Tumbuyan Village, Ilesha-Ibaruba, a community in Kwara State - to build local capacity in tree nursery operations, tree planting and woodlot establishment for energy purposes. The CEO of AFCL, Mr. Edward Ayeni, stated that it is the responsibility of economic actors in the forest sector to ensure the sustainability of the forest so as to secure their businesses and livelihoods. He acknowledged that forest businesses will in the near future be constrained by the shrinking forest…
Walk for Nature (WFN) is an annual nature advocacy event jointly organized by the Lagos State Ministry of the Environment and NCF to create awareness and promote nature conservation and sustainable environmental management for the protection of Nigeria’s biological resources. The event also encourages people to take positive actions and support natural resource management efforts for present and future generations, to reverse the impact of climate change and continuing decline of Nigeria’s wildlife resources in line with the global call for positive action. Protecting the rich biodiversity that occur in Lagos State is of global conservation importance as an important route for Afro-Eurasian species of birds and an important breeding ground for the other aquatic species. NCF has partnered with the Lagos State Government in organizing “Walk for Nature” for the past nine years and has enjoyed tremendous support and cooperation of Corporate Organizations, civil society groups and public. The goal of this initiative is that it should be adopted at the National level to be implemented simultaneously in all States of the Federation or at least in the six geo-political zones. As people are becoming increasingly environmentally conscious and reflecting this in their everyday choices, the event offers a…

Cross River Tropical Rainforest, the largest remaining rainforest ecosystem in Nigeria and one of the 25 biodiversity hotspots in the world is facing a very serious threats of degradation on account of the proposed Super Highway project of the Cross River State Government . This rich forest estate is serving as home to highly threatened species including 1,568 plant species of which 77 are endangered medicinal plants and orchids, 22 primate species such as the Cross River gorilla (with only about 300 individuals remaining in the wild), Nigeria-Cameroon chimpanzee, drill monkeys, and a range of other wildlife species facing one of the greatest conservation challenges of our time. Recent policy direction of the Cross River State Government has given consent for the unprecedented destruction of pristine forest habitats for the construction of the Super Highway. Consequently, dozens of earthmovers have been sighted in forest reserves and community forests making permanent and irreversible alterations to the rich forest landscape of Bakassi, Akamkpa, Ikom, Boki, and Bekwara Local Government Areas (LGAs). Sadly, this action is aggravating widespread poverty and ultimately resulting in untold hardship among indigenous communities that live adjacent to these forests. Essentially, this unplanned and unsustainable developmental action of government…
