Gulf of Guinea

This body of water off the coast of Cameroon in the northeastern tropical Atlantic lies at the intersection of the Equator and Tropical Meridian. Bordering beaches that are prime nesting habitat for the threatened leatherback sea turtle, the Gulf of Guinea surrounds the island nation of São Tomé and Príncipe, which hosts important habitat for humpback whales, West African manatees, dolphins, and soft corals. Major rivers feed into the Gulf including the Niger River, which is known for abundant crude oil reserves and is being explored for oil and gas mining. Luckily, NGO's have been hard at work assisting with the development of full-chain wildlife law enforcement programs, and cooperating with both government and international partners to mainstream green development strategies and approaches.
