INITIATIVE

Help to protect the Comoé National Park and its research station!

Due to adverse conditions (high humidity, attack by termites) the station needs renovation.

Your donations will help to maintain a unique biodiversity hotspot, also by supporting the research station. The maintenance of the station is not only important for current research but also for the protection of this unique ecosystem with is its fauna and flora of the station. Only environmental knowledge and increasing awareness of the public can lead to its longterm sustainable use.

Your donation will contribute to protect the West Africa’s largest National Park and its biodiversity.

Only a sustainable use of this ecosystem can guarantee the survival of the many mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles, insects, and plants that are specifically adapted this habitat.
