The tropical climate offers a diverse habitat that has four wildlife reserves in Sierra Leone. A wide range of animal species, from elephants to hippos, chimpanzees, lions, and a variety of birds. It has been estimated that over 99 species of fish, 147 mammals, 626 types of birds, 67 reptiles, and 35 amphibian species are in Sierra Leone. After the civil war, deforestation, overfishing, mining, etc., the country is seeing a decline in the numbers of wildlife.
