Working for birds in Africa


Sat, 01/26/2013 - 00:03 -- abc_admin

Togo has many environmental concerns, exacerbated by increasing population pressure, including deforestation, overgrazing and subsequent soil erosion, and urban expansion.

Although Togo has three designated National Parks, nine Faunal Reserves and 53 Forest Reserves, lawlessness following coup attempts in the early 1990s had a devastating impact on conservation with indiscriminate killing of wildlife occurring in most protected areas. On the positive side, there are some nominally protected areas that remain relatively undisturbed and which adequately protect some vegetation types and therefore habitat for birds.

Two of the IBAs are nominally National Parks and two are Faunal Reserves.
