Seller: albinelucki (2) 100%, Location: Leicester, Ships to: GB, Item: 163507983811 The Republic Of Gambia Sir Dawda Jawara The Banjul Declaration | Rare Mint 1977 The Banjul Declaration of 18 February 1977. It is a sobering reflection that in a relatively short period of our history most of our larger wildlife species have disappeared together with much of the original forest cover. The survival of the wildlife still remaining with us and the setting aside of protected natural habitats for them is the concern of all of us. It would be tragic if this priceless natural heritage, the product of millions of years of evolution, should be further endangered or lost for want of proper concern. This concern is a duty which we owe to ourselves, to our great African heritage and the world. Thus, I solemnly declare that my government pledges its untiring efforts to conserve for now and posterity as wide a spectrum as possible of our remaining flora and fauna. The Protected Area system of the Gambia dating back to 1916, when Abuko Nature Reserve was protected as a water catchment area, and given Reserve status in 1968, and extended to its current size (105ha.) In that same year, the River Gambia National Park (500ha) was created, while both Niumi National Park (7500ha.) and Kiang West National Park (11000ha) were gazetted in 1987. Kiang West represent a departure from the traditional concept of Park Management in that its goal is to conserve the existing flora and fauna in collaboration with the resident population as well for all the Gambian people. In 1993 Tanji Bird Reserve (612ha) was gazetted and Bao-bolon Wetland Reserve (20,000ha) gazetted in 1997. Very lately in 2008, Tanbi wetlands complex (6,000 ha ) was designated as a national park in the middle of a fast developing urban area, whilst Bolong Fenyo (320 ha) in Gunjur Village, Kombo South; was gazetted as the first community owned wildlife reserve of the country.
