The data was released on Tuesday in Luanda by the coordinator of the Technical Unit of the Executive Committee for Monitoring and Reinforcement of Implementation of Protection and Conservation Measures of this antelope, Vladimir Russo.

Vladimir Russo, who presented the Plan, during the Workshop on the Program for the Protection of the Giant Black Antelope, considered this budget as "humble", which will serve for the rehabilitation and construction of some infrastructures, both in Cangandala National Park and in Luando Reserve, acquisition of equipment, communication services, management of the respective conservation areas, expendable consumption materials, subsidy payments, among others.

In addition to this emergency plan, there is another transition that runs from July 2018 to December 2019.

Although resources are tight, efforts are being made to ensure that by August 2019 ecotourism in the Cangandala National Park and the Luando full reserve is a reality.
