Mandara Plateau mosaic

WWF Abstract

The Mandara Plateau is one of the most environmentally, agriculturally, and ethnically diverse areas in West Africa. With volcanic mountains in the background, these forests harbor a great diversity of species, from large mammals to small lizards. Very little of the region is formally protected however, and grazing and frequent burning are among the major threats. This ecoregion is called a mosaic because of the great diversity of habitat types, including forests and savannas, that occur in a patchwork along the rivers and mountains.
