QUESTION OF THE DAY

The Department of Parks and Wild life has demarcated 6,304 hectares of wet land , with 4, 800 hectares of mangroves, located at the mouth of the river and covering the southern portion of the estuary, as the Tanbi Wetlands National Park. This include the area around Bund Road of Banjul going down to the cape creek further covering Old Jeshwang and areas in Lamin and Mandinaring Village.

Encroachment on the wetlands may disrupt the life of the wildlife found in the area and may lead to wildlife penetration of human settlements , floods, pollution and other natural or human made disasters.

The Ministry of Lands and Regional Government and the Ministry of Environment and climate change should look into all the wetlands and ensure respect for the international conventions restricting human settlement on wetlands ,which are so important for natural drainage and avoidance of flood.

Th appearance of crocodiles in Banjul may well be a result of human encroachment on the wetlands.
