The IWC- Africa-Focused Sousa Task Team was established in early 2020 in response to repeated warnings of the severe decline of both species of Sousa (Atlantic and Indian Ocean humpback dolphins) that occur off the coast of Africa. The focus of this Task Team is to develop a comprehensive framework of conservation actions. This is the largest Task Team to-date, with 35 members from 14 African countries, and the scale reflects the challenges, due to both the magnitude of the problems facing Sousa in Africa, and the geographical scale involved.
Gabon is one of the country members of the IWC - Task Team on the Atlantic Humpback dolphin
