Survey: 60% of PAs in central Africa threatened by O&G drilling, mining

N'DJAMENA: Nearly half of the 206 protected areas in Central Africa are under threat from the oil and gas industries, a report published on Tuesday by the Central African Forest Observatory said.

If mining is included, it swells to 60 percent - or some 800,000 square kilometers - said Georges Belmond Tchoumba, regional coordinator of the World Wide Fund for Nature's forestry program in Central Africa.
