Fauna of Liberia
Liberia supports an impressive array of fauna. Both marine, freshwater and terrestrial species are well represented. At present, our knowledge of the country’s fauna is still developing.
Recent research work has identified several species previously unrecorded in Liberia. So far, a number of endemic species have been found, such as the Western Nimba Toad and the Liberian Greenbul.

Flora of Liberia
Liberia’s diverse flora reflects the range of ecosystems found in the country, from the mangrove forests on the coast to areas of savanna, non-forested swampland, open grassland, and globally important forest and wetland habitats.
Thanks to the efforts of dedicated botanists, new species are still being discovered in Liberia and in the West Africa region as a whole.

Inadequate capacity in Liberia puts the country at a severe disadvantage in the conservation effort.
Conservation needs in Liberia are being addressed progressively, with training at the fore.
Various NGOs and GOs have worked and continue to work to make available tools that nurture conservation interest and increase the effectiveness of teaching in the country.
