Soon to be and Newly Protected Areas

There are 11 proposed protected areas in Liberia to date, of which the closest to gazettement is the Wonegezi Forest, the pilot site for the REDD+ project in Liberia. Cestos-Senkwehn and Foya Forest are also receiving a lot of attention.

Other proposed protected areas include:

Wologizi Forest

Grand Kru-River Gee Forest

Gbi Forest

Zwedru Forest

West Nimba Forest

Margibi Mangrove

Bong Mountain

Kpo Mountain

The number of proposed protected areas continue to increase with the discovery of the presence of endangered species and of diminishing ecosystems.
