- The survival of wildlife in Africa is a matter of grave concern especially for tourism.

- The African Tourism Board organized a public joint webinar with Polar Projects to address this important concern.
Through the public webinar that was organized jointly by the African Tourism Board (ATB) and Polar Projects on Sunday, wildlife and tourism gurus from Africa have expressed their serious concern over escalating poaching incidences and crime against wildlife in Africa.

Dr. Rifai said that ATB targets to make Africa a “One Force” in making this continent the best tourist destination in the world.
