With a rapid deforestation rate and a number of wildlife species facing extinction, Ghana conservation is a vital concern.
The biggest threats to Ghana’s environment are poaching, logging, deforestation, land abuse, fires, drought, pollution, over-fishing and over-grazing.
Ghana Wildlife Society has a number of initiatives including over 60 Wildlife Clubs run in schools and communities across the country, community outreach programmes to create awareness about sustainability and wildlife protection, coastal bird protection programmes, community forest protection programme,
turtle conservation and wildlife conservation across the national parks and reserve are also in effect, however poaching is not monitored properly by government, which creates increasing problems, as does the logging industry which further increase habitat loss.
Preservation Ghana includes designated protected areas across the country, making up about 4.6% of the total land area.
Sacred forests are often highly protected areas as well, due to this land often being used for religious festivals and ceremonies the land is thought to be holy which prevents deforestation in these areas.
