LIBERIA

Liberia’s wildlife was plundered during the civil war of the 1990s and early 2000s. The peace the country has enjoyed since 2003 has brought renewed optimism for conservation in a country rich in biodiversity, although its forests are under threat from logging and plantations. Liberia joined the EPI in 2015.
