While Nigeria is probably best known today for its oil deposits, the country is home to a rich diversity of forests and wildlife, including at least 899 species of birds, 274 mammals, 154 reptiles, 53 amphibians, and 4,715 species of higher plants. Nevertheless Nigeria’s forests are some of the most threatened on the planet due to high population growth rates, conversion for subsistence and industrial agricultural, and logging.
Nigeria that was once in the heart of the Africa tropical forest belt has lost 95% forest cover. 18 species of primates. Many of the poor live off the forest and this contributes to the erosion of the forest. 50% of the total rainforest in Nigeria lies in Cross River State. Extensive education programmes are given to help sensitise the new generation of learners to the delicate environmental issues facing Nigeria
