Siarau: The Tidal Forest, Korup, Fragile Earth, Proboscis monkey

I first arrived in Cameroun in January 1977 to make a wildlife film about a tropical forest, in the hope of helping to create a national park. I was lucky enough to meet Steve Gartlan and his wife Sue who invited me to stay at their camp on the shores of Lac Tissongo in the Doula Edea reserve on the coast of Cameroun. Happy days! Steve and I went on to collaborate on the establishment of the Korup National Park, that eventually received an official designation in 1986. The resulting film, ‘Korup: An African Rainforest’, was broadcast on Channel 4 in November 1982.
