The West African country of Ghana on the Gulf of Guinea is home to a rich diversity of flora and fauna in its unique tropical landscape. However, this is threatened by environmental pollution and marine erosion. A lot of garbage ends up in the sea and endangers the habitat of its inhabitants.
Even large sea turtles, which are threatened with extinction in many other regions, have found a protected place to lay their eggs on Ghana's beaches. Besides, Ghana is also inhabited by many other animals such as lions, leopards, elephants, hyenas, buffalo antelopes and various species of crocodiles and monkeys. The tropical rainforests are even more colorful with over 750 bird species and about 1000 different butterfly species.
