Prof. Mathew Onoja, the Director-General of the Centre, also appreciated the State Government’s intervention, particularly in response to a viral video that circulated in December.

He commended the swift efforts made towards repairing and renovating the Centre, acknowledging its importance as a major tourism asset in Lagos State.

The Centre, established in 1990, spans 78 hectares (190 acres) and serves as a vital natural resource conservation area. It offers a serene environment conducive to nature tourism and boasts the longest canopy walkway in Africa, attracting visitors seeking unique outdoor experiences.

The routine maintenance of the facility commenced in January, prompted by concerns arising from a damaged section of the Canopy Walkway which led to its closure.
