Fathala reserve

The Fathala reserve is another reserve run by the SPEFS administration in a close co-operation with the DNPS in Dakar. The reserve li­es in the southwestern Senegal not far from the coast (13°39‘N; 16°27‘W) and is the enclosed part of the ‚Forêt de Fathala‘ with a protective and partially managed regime in the terrestrial parts of the Delta du Saloum national park. Here protection is for the remains of the thick tree savannah with the remnant fauna. The ‚Forêt de Fathala‘ is threatened by excessive livestock grazing from the surrounding villages, intensive illegal logging, fruit and bark gathering and poa­ching.
