The border area, between Côte d’Ivoire and Liberia, includes large forests of West Africa, in particular the classified forest of Goin-Debé, (133,170 ha), the classified forest of Cavally, (67,596 ha), and Taï National Park, (508,186 ha). These massifs, located in the south-west of Côte d’Ivoire, represent a unique natural heritage and are home to approximately 1,300 species of vascular plants, (of which approximately 12% are endemic), and many threatened mammals such as the Jentink’s Duiker, (Cephalophus jentinki , EN), Pigmy Hippopotamus, (Choeropsis liberiensis, EN), and Chimpanzees, (Pan troglodytes verus, CR), and nearly 12 other primate species. These areas are particularly threatened by poaching and deforestation linked to illegal mining (gold), export monocultures (rubber trees, cocoa, coffee, oil palms).
