On this episode John Daniels talks about founding the Cross River Gorilla Project which seeks to protect the rainforest, its animals and the surrounding communities. John shares his first-hand experience of trekking in the highlands, and his experiences camping in the rainforest, home to the critically endangered Gorilla. He talks about the behaviours and character of the gorillas and chimpanzees and how the conservation drive is very viable, as although the gorilla numbers are small, they live a long time, so there is opportunity for them to flourish, if the conditions are right within their environment.
John gives his thoughts on the current humanitarian crisis in Cameroon, the challenges they are facing and how this impacts on conservation projects and makes their support of the rangers even more vital. His talks about successful UK home schooling project, The Gorilla Club and his ambitions for taking these education programs into the schools and villages of Cameroon.
