Project for the Application of Law for Fauna

Founding Year: 2008



PALF is the “result of the acknowledgment” of the need for a paradigm shift in conservation, believing that a “closer follow up of judicial procedures, from the investigations and operations, to trials and all the way to the sentencing and the application of penalties is indispensable.” It supports “the Ministry of Sustainable Development, Forest Economy and the Environment (MDDEFE) in this regard, under the auspices of its Consortium, composed of The Aspinall Foundation”  and is part of a “network of similar projects in Central Africa, lead by LAGA in Cameroon, and also including RALF in Central African Republic and AALF in Gabon.”
