Reducing threats to biodiversity in the Nimba Mountains

The Nimba Mountains are within the Upper Guinean Ecosystem - a large expanse of West African rainforest stretching from western Togo to eastern Sierra Leone. They are a major global conservation priority because of their high levels of endemism, diversity, species rarity and immediate threats from deforestation. Only 10% of the original forest ecosystem is thought to survive today.
