Abstract

African Traditional Religion recognizes the sacred quality of the ecological system because it serves as dwelling place for divinities, deities, spirits as well as the medium through which the sovereign or Supreme Being (God) can be reached. It has been discovered that the influence of modernism and secularism has created an irrevocable havoc and devastation to the ecological system and unspeakable catastrophe to African Traditional Religion. The objective of this paper was to examine the African ecological philosophy as a practice and ideology of resolving the present world ecological problem. This article adopts phenomenological method. The work recommends that both government and traditional societies should put serious measures to check the wanton destruction of the ecological system.
