LUFASI PARK is an urban forest dedicated for people to connect and interact with nature. Located in along Km 41, on the Lekki-Epe Expressway, is home to some protected animals. It also houses a man made lake.
LUFASI was born out of a desire to educate and persuade people on the necessity of Loving nature because nature provides us with everything we need. It is a tool for environmental education and awareness.
The visionary behind the park is Mr. Desmond Majekodunmi, a man who has love and is dedicated to preserving our environment. He is a philantropist, an environmentalist and farmer with a thrust on sustainable practices.
On a joint trip to the reserve, we were shown different spots, but of particular note were the animals including the really old tortoise, donkeys, horses, birds, racoons, and the monkeys.
Having a female get -together, Lufasi Park was the perfect location as the ambience, the old trees, peace and quiet made it more thrilling.
At the time of visit, a female monkey who was red-on heat appeared upset at the tour guide’s diversion of attention from her. Moments later, a wig was pulled off the head of a friend in the group by the jealous mammal! Impulse and laughter resounded but apparently, the animal was not excited.
More importantly, these are the values that Lufasi Park represents as an organization.
Forest Conservation: The protection of 20 hectares of indigenous forest in Lagos. We are committed to preserve, restore and extend forests in urban areas.
Environmental Education: We continuously develop creative tools for teaching about Climate Change, Conservation and Forests, merging science with community intelligence.
Animal Rescue: Our center serves as a refuge for distressed and persecuted animals. These animals are protected in the forest park for reintegration into the wild.
Partnerships: Partnerships enable the LUFASI brand to strengthen our fundraising performance, stimulate public relations and communications.
Advocacy: Lufasi spreads awareness about environmental issues as well as advocate against the abuse of our environment by organizations and governments.
Tree Nursery: Trees are the first victims of urban development. Yet, they are critical for the mitigation of Climate Change and other environmental issues.
