Equatorial Guinea is party to a number of international treaties including Biodiversity, Climate Change, Desertification and Endangered Species. There are many environmental issues: tap water is not drinkable; hunting; deforestation is extensive on Rio Muni and considerably exceeds the government targets; the impact of oil extraction on the island of Bioko.

In conjunction with a European Union funded programme, the Ministry of Forests and the Environment has developed a national network of 13 protected areas covering 5,860 km2 or 18% of the country. 10 protected areas are on the mainland, 2 are on Bioko as well as the whole of Annobón.
