Sekakoh’s activities in the North region of Cameroon are taking place in Bénoué National Park. The protected area is situated in the middle of the North region, surrounded by multiple hunting zones and two other national parks: Boubandjidah and Faro.
It has two major national roads crossing through its centre, which facilitates illegal entry into the park. Therefore, in collaboration with the Conservator Kevin Jean-Paul Mbamba Mbamba, Sekakoh is working to minimize human activity and presence in the protected area.
