[en] Hippopotamus number ; WAP ecosystem ; West Africa
[en] For the first time in April 2003, an aerial total
wildlife count of the entire W-Arli-Pendjari-Oti-
Mandouri-Keran (WAPOK) Ecosystem, the largest
savannah ecosystem of West Africa, has been
conducted.
During this survey, Hippopotamus have been observed
51 times, totaling 696 individuals. An average
of 13.86 ± 16.73 individuals was noted. The
group size varied between 1 and 65 individuals.
In the WAPOK ecosystem, the future of hippopotamus
is ensured by the tourism activity in the
area and the redistribution of tourism revenue to
human communities living around the ecosystem,
thanks to several conservation project, but more
certainly, to the conservation initiative of several
private stakeholders.
