Guinean Forests of West Africa
Conservation International Abstract
The lowland forests of West Africa are home to more than a quarter of Africas mammals, including more than 20 species of primates. Logging, mining, hunting and human population growth are placing extreme stress on the forests, however, threatening species such as the Jentinks duiker, pygmy hippopotamus, and scattered populations of western chimpanzees. Five Endemic Bird Areas lie partly or entirely within the hotspot.
