Niger’s Park W is a refuge for the most emblematic species of the African savannah, with elephants, wild dogs, manatees, cheetahs, hippopotamus, lions and the last population of giraffes in West Africa located at the edge of the park’s biosphere reserve. With 73 species of large mammals, 200 species of fish, 100 species of reptiles and 530 species of birds, the ecological, scientific, touristic and economic interest of Park W is unparalleled.

Monitoring

One of the first critical steps will be to create a baseline study of wildlife in the park, therefore a survey of all large mammals will be carried out on yearly basis. Specific monitoring system based on tracking with satellite/GPS devices will be implemented with key species such as elephant, lion and Western hartebeest. Actions will be taken to confirm the presence of wild dogs and leopards and if confirmed, a special program will be developed to improve knowledge on their population number, seasonal movements within the WAP complex, and threats. Scientific research will also be fostered through close collaboration with Nigerien and foreign universities and research organizations.
