GORSALA ENDOUI, PATROL LEADER OF THE NEW ZAH SOO NATIONAL PARK

May 18, 2022 | NEWSROOM

Patrol leader at the newly established Zah Soo National Park for Noé in Chad, Gorsala Endoui is originally from Mayo Kebbi West. After passing the national forestry attendant competition in 2013, he completed paramilitary training. He completed another two-year study (2017-2019)  as a Senior Environmental Technician at the School of Agricultural Techniques with a specific study in elephant management strategy outside protected areas.
As GFF (Forest and Wildlife Guard) agent, he joined Noé after our anti-poaching training and became a patrol leader.

“Lately I have been transferred to the operations room to follow the agents on patrol and handle their feedback via a computer connected to their GPS systems. My day-to-day job is to patrol, and it’s not a walk in the park! A patrol officer has to be ready for anything: poaching, threats from animals… I hope that in the future, West Mayo Kebbi will become one of the first areas in Chad to attract tourists, and that the park will be classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. To those who wish to make environmental protection their profession, I find it is a noble and meaningful endeavour for any human being. It is to participate in the maintenance of the garden that nature has given us”.
