Ethiopian montane grasslands and woodlands

WWF Abstract

In the past, some plant species that are now restricted to isolated mountaintops would have once presumably been found lower down and been more widespread. Today, if you were to climb up into the eastern and western Ethiopian highlands, you'd come across numerous farms and many people. You would probably also encounter patches of grassland, shrubland, and forest that harbor wilder forms of life. These natural areas are home to a variety of rare birds and mammals, including some of the world's last remaining Walia ibex--a species of wild goat with enormous curved horns.
