1001Tunisie left to Niamey (Niger) from February 19th to 23rd to promote Tunisia and its tourism by taking part in the Salon of Agriculture and the environment and during which Tunisia is guest of honor. To this end, 1001Tunisie has published a reprint of more than 50 pages in partnership with the Tuniso Belgo Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce (CCTBL) on the Giraffes. The CCTBL is leading a mission to promote agricultural products and the agro-food industry, with a strong participation of Tunisian operators, whose objective is to strengthen Tunisia’s positioning in this emerging market.
Territory giraffes is a project for the preservation of the endangered species and that now Niger wants to inscribe on the World Heritage of UNESCO. 60 kms from Niamey, the white giraffes of Niger are the object of attention. Endangered by the destruction of the forest and poaching, the last herd of free-range giraffes in all of West Africa is moving around the village of Kouré and Dallol Bosso, covering more than 1,700 km2.
Destined to disappear, giraffes have survived thanks to the efforts of the local population, the government and the support of various projects such as those of the Giraffes Safeguard Association of Niger (ASGN), the Association for the Valorisation of Ecotourism in Niger (AVEN) and, more recently, the Giraffe Conservation Foundation and the Sahara Conservation Fund.
Niger is the only African country to have developed a strategy to protect giraffes in the early 1990s, after having found that it sheltered the last 50 giraffes of West Africa.
