International Organization for Animal Protection (OIPA) – Cameroon is an international NGO based in Cameroon that works towards Animal and environmental protection. OIPA is fully authorized by the Government of Cameroon.
WORKING ANIMALS ARE SUBJECTED TO TOO MUCH SUFFERING AND PAIN IN THE NAME OF UTILIZATION FOR HUMAN SUSTAINING ACTIVITIES.
No matter the weight of the goods, the owners of the animals comfortably use theme to transport their goods from fields to markets. Sometimes, the animals trek about 20 kilometers to reach such destinations, with very little fodder, water and rest. The animals carry very heavy loads, such as bags of rice, corn, millet, sorghum or groundnuts, and even clay pots or other artisanal items over long distances.
It should be noted that this area of Cameroon is located in the Sahel region, which is characterized by extreme arid and hot climate: so you can imagine what the animals here go through especially in terms of food, water and temperature regulation.
Doubtless, something has to be done to protect the rights of these animals.
Support OIPA to educate animal owners in the far North of Cameroon and give this animal a better life.
WE MOVE YOUTHS TO LOVE ANIMAL AND PROTECT THEIR HABITATS
As we begin the twenty-first century, concerns abound for the health and well-being of our youth. Experts cite the loss of outdoor time and a disconnect with nature as serious threats to youth, as well as the future of our forests. No one can argue that more and more land is being developed for urban and suburban residences, businesses, utilities, and other structures. There are simply less open places to play, fish, hike, and explore. Unplanned growth threatens our land resources, and proper management of our natural resources, particularly forests, is a pressing need as well. To establish a tradition of forest stewardship for future generations, it is important to involve young people and provide them with information and awareness about responsible land management. This publication is intended for parents, educators, and other adults who are interested in teaching youth about forest stewardship. The goal is to empower all youth, regardless of whether they are voters, visitors, or landowners, to meet the challenge to sustain our future forests and pass these forests on to their children in better condition than they received them.
Today’s children are the next generation of conservationists and decision makers. They are the ones who will be responsible for ensuring a strong protection of all animal species and their environment. We cannot wait any longer before introducing animal welfare in their educational system at the earliest possible stage.
