Discover DJa Faunal Reserve in Cameroon, one of the most protected areas in Africa and the congo basin.
The DJa faunal reserve is located in the south-east of Cameroon, and it covers an area of about 5,000 square kilometers.
It’s one of the largest protected areas in the Congo Basin, and it’s home to a wide variety of ecosystems, including savannah, rainforest, and gallery forest.
It’s an incredibly biodiverse place, and it’s home to more than 10,000 species of plants and animals, including many endangered and threatened species.
The Dja Faunal Reserve is home to the largest population of forest elephants in Central Africa, and it’s one of the few places where these elephants can live safely and freely. The elephants in the reserve play a crucial role in the ecosystem, as they help to disperse seeds and create clearings in the forest. The reserve is also home to many other animals, including chimpanzees, gorillas, buffalos, lions, and leopards.
The western lowland gorilla is the most endangered species in this reserve. These gorillas are one of the four subspecies of gorilla, and they’re listed as critically endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.
The reserve is one of the last strongholds for western lowland gorillas, and it’s home to one of the largest populations of these gorillas in the world. These gorillas are incredibly important to the reserve’s ecosystem, and they face many threats, including habitat loss and poaching.
the second ranking of the reserve’s endangered species is the giant pangolin.
The giant pangolin is one of the largest species of pangolin in the world, and it’s also listed as critically endangered by the IUCN. Pangolins are shy, solitary creatures, and they’re threatened by illegal hunting and habitat loss. They play an important role in the forest ecosystem as they help to disperse seeds and keep the forest floor clean by eating termites and ants.
