Moussa FALL, National Conservative of the Lengua de Barbarie National Park: the commander who has the heavy responsibility to implement the Senegalese policy about managing national parks. 8/07/2017

Agriculture engineer and Marine protected Areas specialist, Moussa FALL, de a Senegalese has ranked among the National Parks conservative officials since April 2014.

Fall as a commander coordinated the project that supports the institutionalization of the RAMPAO Network implemented by the International Foundation for the Banc d’Arquin (FIBA) with the financing of the OAK Foundation. It in this framework the RAMPAO was officially created in Praia in Cabo Verde in 2007. His professional carrier has led him to occupy the position of an expert in monitoring and evaluation of the ecosystem-based integrated management project of Senegal (PGIES) before staying at the National Park of birds of Djoudj.

Having become a National Conservative of the Lengua de Barbarie National Park (PNLB) since January 2015, his mission consists in implementing the Senegalese policy about managing national parks and conserving biodiversity in the site through his three main components which are: the development, the ecological monitoring and surveillance.

In his approach, Moussa FALL has favored the participative approach. That is the reason why he has initiated and developed the concept of Construction Environment Site in collaboration with the eco-guards, the scouts in the Region of Fleuve and the students who are members of the Gaston Berger University initiative for a green environment. These meetings are always highlight moments of human investment (planting mangrove and filao, cleaning, monitoring birds and sea turtles nesting grounds, the benchmarking of the breeding migratory waterbirds, sensitization and environmental educations, etc…) aiming at saving the site.

This concept, implemented every year, favours also the sensitization of the youth generation on the challenges and issues related to the conservation of biodiversity and the living environment.

As a reminder, the PNBL was created in 1976 on sensitive intertidal ecosystems to assure the protection of the sea turtle nesting grounds and the breeding colonies of the migratory water birds. It covers a global surface around 2.000 ha and extends for around 17 km, between the lighthouse Gandiole in the North and the former mouth of the Senegal River in the south. The PNLB is one of the core areas of the trans boundary biosphere reserve of the Delta of the Senegal River and is a founding member of the RAMPAO.
