Embassy Helps Preserve Chad’s Natural Patrimony

As part of the U.S. Embassy’s engagement to preserve Chad’s rich natural patrimony, Chargé d’Affaires Richard Bell handed over 28 elephant tracking collars and two new Toyota Land Cruisers to the Minister of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, and the Minister of the Environment, Water, and Fishing on November 27. The collars and vehicles support a cooperative educational and environmental program between the Ministry of Environment and the University of N’Djamena. They will be used to track and monitor the herding and migration movements of Chad’s elephants and to connect students to environmental professionals in Chad’s national parks.
