Eeya is the Baka word for elephant, an animal that is an important figure in the lives of the indigenous Baka tribes of Cameroon. The Baka are known as the “scientists of the forest” for their knowledge of the ecosystem, Bbut unfortunately many find themselves caught in the middle of Central Africa’s forest elephant poaching epidemic. Some are drawn into poaching gangs, while others are working for conservation groups. We take a walk through the forest with Bosso Andre and his son Gaston to learn more about how the illegal ivory trade has impacted the Baka way of life.
