Conservation of tropical rainforest in Liberia : recommendations for wildlife conservation and national parks

Complete Title: 
Conservation of tropical rainforest in Liberia : recommendations for wildlife conservation and national parks
IUCN Publication
Abstract: 

This report takes stock of the existing situation regarding nature conservation, wildlife and national parks in Liberia, and puts forward several proposals to remedy the situation described - which at first might seem hopeless. Urgent measures are absolutely necessary or the point of no return will be reached in Liberia, with all the economic and ecological consequences which that implies. The author is convinced that the setting up of the Forestry Development Authority (FDA) in 1976 and the great interest in conservation shown by the highest authorities of Liberia will allow for the forest ecosystem in Liberia to be saved before it is too late.
