Map Of Mount Nimba Strict Reserve
Why Was It Included In The List
Mount Nimba is a chain of mountains covered in forest and unique flora and fauna including chimpanzees and viviparous toads. The mountains reach a peak of 1,752 m altitude. The Mount Nimba region is surrounded by savannah and dense forage.
It has a unique list of animals starting with a large variety of chimpanzees that are smart and evolved using stones as tools. They have a small amount of viviparous toads that are endangered from there reduced breeding areas.
The Mount Nimba Strict Nature Reserve was established in 1944 in Cote d'Ivoire. The site is recognized and is owned partially by Guinea and there is a Nature Reserve in the Liberian section.
Its unique geographical and climatic location combined with its biogeographical background provides the Nimba Reserve with one of the most remarkable diversities of the whole West African region.
Mount Nimba is home to endangered species plus it also has many non endangered unique animals and plants and that's another reason we should save mount Nimba and that is why it was put on the list.

Mount Nimba Strict Nature Reserve
What Threats Does Mount Nimba Face?
Located on the borders of Guinea, Liberia and Côte d’Ivoire in Africa.
Longitude and latitude-
7°32'N - 7° 44'N and 8°20' W - 8°30
Mount Nimba Strict Reserve's biggest threat is international consortium responsible for the ore-mining happening at the reserve even though it has been made legal it needs to be stopped. Another threat is poaching of the unique fauna.
Mount Nimba Goes Wild
Two possible solutions are making ore-mining illegal or trying to catch the poachers.
I think making the mining illegal is the more sufficient idea. Mining means cutting down trees in order to dig killing animals that no longer have habitats and bringing machinery into the reserve that could be damaging the flora.
If the mining became illegal the forest would start to grow again bringing back more animals and if we let the mining continue we could see more animals becoming extinct from Mount Nimba
I believe in order to save the reserve we must stop this mining and it is possible all we need to do is get the Guinea government to realize that flora and fauna is more important than a few extra minerals.
