Heather Arrowood of Organisation Ecotouristique du Lac Oguemoué (OELO) will present a case study from Tsam Tsam in the West African country of Gabon, focusing on OELO's efforts to promote wildlife conservation through community-based ecotourism. The case study, based on OELO's ecotourism site at Tsam Tsam Village and lessons learned from its first year of operations, will also feature OELO's partnership with WWF to promote conservation in the Bas-Ogooué Ramsar Site and to engage in participatory mapping to define local land-uses and to address land tenure issues.
