The BMCRif Football Tournament

The 2nd BMCRif Football Tournament was an even bigger success than the first one! This time, with the help of Youssef Salama of the Tetouan Football Association (who also provided the trophies); we tripled the amount of boys who took part in the games and reached 100s of people with our conservation message about the Barbary macaques. The qualifying matches took place over three weeks in October. Teams from villages around Jbel Kelti in the isolated calcareous massif also took part. The team from Lahcen came 2nd last year and they were determined to win this year so well done to them.
