The Last Hope
This play was written as part of an evaluation of Africa’s oldest and most diverse rainforest conservation initiative in the Korup area, with the aim of highlighting and sharing some lessons learned from the creation of the Korup National Park, through a period of full activity, to when activities were considerably reduced. It is a fine blend of the results of the evaluation and some carefully developed fictional, artistic materials for the achievement of an overall dramatic effect. Ekpe Inyang gives an informed artistic touch to achieve dramatic effects, succinctly relating the story of Cameroon’s first rainforest national park, Korup.

“The Last Hope offers a fascinating depiction of conservation efforts by protected area managers and the attendant conflicts with the local communities due mostly to the difficulty in balancing conservation objectives with the ever-increasing community livelihood and development needs.”
