Who We Are

The Association for Biodiversity Conservation and Rural Development (ABCARD) was created in 2016 in Kumba, South West Region of Cameroon. It was created as a backdrop of the neglect of some species that are not considered threatened now. We believe that if nothing is done, these species which are not considered threatened will eventually go extinct in the future.
