2510 BURKINA FASO - Wildlife of the country
Burkina Faso is largely wild bush country with a mixture of grass and small trees in varying proportions. The savanna region is mainly grassland in the rainy season and semi desert during the harmattan period. Fauna, one of the most diverse in West Africa, includes the elephant, hippopotamus, buffalo, monkey, lions, crocodile, giraffe, various types of antelope, and a vast variety of bird and insect life. To ensure conservation and preservation of the wildlife of Burkina Faso, four national parks have been established. The forests, fauna and fish have been declared part of the national estate of Burkina Faso.
