Ghana, like many tropical countries, continue to lose its remaining closed forests at an alarming rate. The area of closed forest in Ghana has been reduced to less than 25% of its original value and now exists in fragmented patches that vary in area from about 20 km. sq. – 524 km. sq. Most of these patches have lost their pristine interior habitats that are critical for the protection of vulnerable species. In Ghana, logging, mining and farming constitute the most serious threats to closed forests and their biodiversity.
Several forest reserve IBAs are within the logging concessions and they are actively being logged. Deposits of gold and other precious minerals have been discovered in and around forest reserves and surface mining is being carried out in others.
