Mensah Akomedi

Mensah has a degree in Law and Environmental Policy, specialization on protection of wildlife by criminal law from the University of Lomé in Togo. He is passionate about biodiversity, particularly about the protection of the iconic wildlife species. He joined the EAGLE family of eco activists in October 2013.

The first field missions and research he conducted in Togo's protected areas, like the Fazao-Malfakassa National Park in the central region of the country, where he was terrified by the scale of the illegal logging, poaching, illegal trade in wildlife and the destruction of these species. All this was a result of a poor application of the law and corruption.

Thanks to this experience he learned why the trees that surrounded the national highway N°1 from Lomé (capital of Togo) to Cinkassé (border with Burkina Faso) have almost disappeared as well as the elephants that forced any traveler in the Togo to stop in order to let them pass.

Mensah became an integral part of the EAGLE Family fighting illegal trade in wildlife and logging and contributing to the conservation and protection of these species.

In January 2017 he was appointed a Deputy Coordinator of newly established EAGLE Togo.
