Concerned about illegal logging and pollution in Banco National Park in the Cote D’Ivoire capital Abidjan, authorities are erecting a concrete enclosing wall that they hope will preserve. its special ecosystem.
A 2.5 meter high wall is being built separating the highway from the park. The wall will have a length of 12 km. Banco National Park covers an area of more than 34 square kilometers, making it the second largest urban park in the world.
This National Park has an abundance of plants and animals, including monkeys, chimpanzees, and many 500-year-old trees.
Banco’s aquifers provide 40% of Abidjan’s drinking water and absorb 90,000 tons of CO2 per year.
Cote D’Ivoire authorities are working to preserve Banco National Park with the goal of being recognized by UNESCO as a world heritage site.
