About Rainforest Trust
Rainforests are one of the most vital natural habitats left on Earth. Since 1988, the U.S.-based conservation nonprofit organization Rainforest Trust has helped safeguard over 23 million acres of wildlife habitat around the world (that’s larger than the states of Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Rhode Island combined!). By working with in-country partners and communities to identify ecosystems that are home to the planet’s most threatened species, Rainforest Trust has created over 100 protected areas across Latin America, Africa, and Asia.Learn more
Grand-Béréby Marine Protected Area
The Grand-Béréby coastline is the most significant sea turtle habitat in Côte d'Ivoire. The 30 kilometers of nesting beaches host Green Turtles, Olive Ridleys, and Leatherbacks during the breeding season, while the shallow rocky reefs are foraging grounds for juvenile Green and Hawksbill Turtles year-round.
Recent marine surveys in the rocky reefs along the coastline have revealed a wide array of corals, sponges, sea anemones, molluscs and green and brown algae. These reefs are home to a rich community of fish, crustaceans, groupers, Daisy Stingrays and guitarfish. In the pelagic environment, species include Vulnerable Silky Sharks and Common Smoothhounds and Near Threatened Spinner Sharks, Tiger Sharks and Bentfin Devil Rays. The area is also visited by Humpback Whales and dolphins of several species, including the Critically Endangered Atlantic Humpback Dolphin.
