Ecopark has taken a strategic decision to expand its role in the developmental support provided to neighbouring communities as an entity of the developmental state. In addition, Ecopark is required to build constituencies at international, national and local levels, in support of conservation of the natural and cultural heritage of West Africa through its corporate social investment. It has to ensure that a broad base of West Africans participate and get involved in biodiversity initiatives, and further that all its operations have a synergistic existence with neighbouring or surrounding communities for their educational and socio-economic benefit, hence enabling the broader society to be connected to national parks.
