Western Guinean lowland forests

WWF Abstract

Visit the Western Guinean Lowland Forests and you may find yourself walking beneath trees that tower as high as 196 feet (60 m) above your path. These are some of West Africa's last stands of wet, tropical forest. As you walk among these trees, you may see some of the amazing animals that live in this ecoregion, including forest elephants, chimpanzees, zebra duikers, and much more.
