Cross-Sanaga-Bioko coastal forests

WWF Abstract

The Cross-Sanaga-Bioko Coastal Forest ecoregion is one of Africa’s richest in forest bird diversity. This exceptional species richness extends to plants as well. In fact, these lush forests are home to half of the endemic plants of west tropical Africa, including six whole families of plants that are found only in tropical Africa. These plants are well nourished by heavy, year-round rainfall. Some areas receive as much as 400 inches (10,000 mm) per year and the humidity is always close to 100 percent. The forests also are home to lowland gorillas, drills, chimpanzees, and even forest elephants.
