Today's offering is Gambella's Hidden Treasures, a film about Gambella National Park, located near the border with South Sudan.

Gambella, Ethiopia's wet western most region, shelters an important wildlife population. Livelihood and landscape are linked, with water as major resource. The Ethiopian Wildlife Conservation Authority is responsible for the protection and management of the park. Gambella's National Park is undergoing a major review. The region shares an important border with the republic of South-Sudan and animals should easily move from one country to the other. Gambella's National Park also has potential for development of ecotourism.

This video is about the protection and preservation of Gambella's National Park. Under new management and new visions Gambella National Park is being transformed into a properly managed protected area.

Produced by: John Purdie, Virtue in partnership/HoA-REC

The film was made in 2010 and subsequent progress in developing the park has been slow, not helped by security problems in the region which have led to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) advising against all travel to the five woredas in which the park is sited (Akobo, Wantawo, Jikawo, Lare, and Jore).

A 2015 paper, Planning for Core Wildlife Conservation Area of Gambella National Park by Gatluak Gatkoth Rolkier, can be downloaded from the International Journal of Innovative Research and Development website.

A short paper from 2016, Investment in national Park? Encounters between land Investment and Wildlife Conservation in Gambella Regional State by Medhi Labzaé, can be downloaded from the Centre français des études éthiopiennes (cfee) open edition books website.

In January 2019 the Ethiopian Wildlife Conservation Authority (EWCA) invited bids for the construction of park office buildings.
