Mon Nimba Nature Reserve



The Mon Nimba Nature Reserve is located on the border of Guinea, Liberia and Côte d'Ivoire. Its central peak - Mount Nimbus (1752 m) - dominates the surrounding savannah. Its slopes are covered with a dense forest with rich flora and fauna, among which endemic species stand out, such as live-bearing toads and chimpanzees, using stones as tools.

Rock formations are rich in iron ore and are an ecologically diverse area. Forests growing here are classified as Guinean mountains, along with grassy pastures in valleys at high altitudes, they attract the attention of naturalists who conducted research on flora and wildlife in the early colonial period.

Mount Nimba was declared a nature reserve in 1981, at the same time received the status of UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Guinea began exploiting the local iron ore deposits in the late 1980s. Such actions have caused concern of international environmental organizations. Mining volumes affected protected areas, and only after the World Heritage Committee expressed concern about such actions, the government announced that a mistake had occurred and the area used for mining was not considered part of the reserve. In this regard, the Mon Nimba Nature Reserve has been placed on the list of endangered sites.скачать dle 11.0фильмы бесплатно
