Jacob Adong use to be a hunter and trapper. He started hunting at the age of 18, going to the bush with dogs, trapping, chasing and killing animals like cane rats, porcupines, and many others. In December 1993, he later started using guns to hunt larger animals like monkeys, duiker and bush pigs. Little did he know some of these animals have been declared as protected species until he came in contact with ERuDeF in 2004. After that encounter with ERuDeF, Jacob became a wildlife conservation advocate in his community, Bechati, and he is currently working as a field guide and a community ranger in the Tofala Hill Wildlife Sanctuary.
Thanks to the support of our board members who cover the majority of our operating expenses, Rainforest Trust is able to allocate 100% of your project donation directly to conservation action.
