The State of Sierra Leone’s Birds: a guide for policy and conservation action

Resource Type: 
Description: 

State of Sierra Leone’s Birds: a guide for policy and conservation action, is a timely assessment of the current practical environmental issues affecting the country’s biodiversity, particularly birds. Located on the western edge of Africa, on the westernmost extent of the Upper Guinea forest, Sierra Leone certainly has a rich avifauna, including three endangered, 10 vulnerable and 12 near-threatened species. Deforestation, urban sprawl, and the degradation of coastal ecology are some of the key factors having negative impacts on the country’s avifauna and wider biodiversity. The report aims to motivate conservationists, protected area managers, policy makers, bird enthusiasts and concerned citizens to take collective action to conserve the country’s valuable natural endowment.
