PARKS
The extinction of the remaining species of plants and animals that exist in Africa would have a tragic impact on humankind. Fortunately, some attempts at slowing the massive destruction of natural creatures and their habit are occurring.

In Niger, for example, the Ténére National Nature Reserve is home to cheetahs, jackals, hyenas, gazelles, and other animals. The Ndoki National Park is located between Cameroon, the Central African Republic, the Republic of the Congo, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Forest elephants, gorillas, and chimpanzees live in this vast forest. Logging and poachers threaten the ancient trees and endangered species in this forest.

The Serengeti National Park in Tanzania extends to the Masai Mara reserve in Kenya. The Serengeti is a vast grassland which is home to zebras, antelopes, buffalo, lions, elephants, and many other animals. In the early 1900s, European sport hunters almost hunted these animals to extinction. Even today, visitors on safari to photograph these animals cause them anxiety.
