Job Advert

The Upper Guinea Forest Ecosystem is one of the worlds priority biodiversity conservation areas due to a high degree of species diversity and endemism, and the key ecological functions it provides to sustain life and livelihoods for millions of West Africans. However, centuries of human activity have resulted in a loss of 70% of the original forest cover. The remaining 420,000km2 is highly fragmented, restricting habitats to isolated patches and threatening the unique species of flora and fauna. However, a general consensus/ agreement has been made between the government of Sierra Leone and Liberia that the Gola Forest block and corridors serving as boundary between the two countries be protected and conserved. This agreement gave birth to the project Transboundary Peace Park Project or Across the River Project. The project is jointly implemented by Conservation Society of Sierra Leone (CSSL), Forestry Division (FD) and the Gola Forest Program (GFP) in Sierra Leone while in Liberia by Society of Conservation of Nature of Liberia (SCNL) and Forestry Development Authority (FDA).
