Western Area Peninsula National Park

Western Area Peninsula National Park is located in the western part of Sierra Leone, near the African country’s Banana Islands. It is part of the Upper Guinean Forest Ecosystem, hosting 80-90 per cent of Sierra Leone’s terrestrial biodiversity. It is one of the 8 biodiversity hotspots in the country. Recently, Sierra Leone inked a 55 million USD deal with China to build an industrial fishing harbour on the fringe of this reserve.
