Located at the heart of Sierra Leone, the Kangari Hills Forest Reserve is one of the only remaining Upper Guinean forest ecosystems in the country and home to such protected species as forest elephants, chimpanzees and 115 documented bird species. The reserve holds massive potential for biodiversity conservation, but illegal artisanal gold mining activities and logging continue within this dense Guinea forest biome.
