BREAKING: SUPERHIGHWAY SCALED BACK - CRITICAL HABITAT STILL IN DANGER

NIGERIAN SUPERHIGHWAY HAS BEEN SCALED BACK — BUT CRITICAL RAINFOREST HABITAT REMAINS IN DANGER. LET'S KEEP THE PRESSURE ON!

Update: 3/16/17: WCS Nigeria staff attended an important meeting about the superhighway in Calabar on 3/16/17, where the Cross River State government verbally agreed to reroute the superhighway away from the Ekuri community forest. Thanks to the pressure you helped to create, Cross River gorilla habitat is no longer threatened, but habitat for vulnerable species like chimpanzees, forest elephants, and pangolins continues to be threatened. The route still cuts through Cross River National Park, Ukpon River Forest Reserve, and Cross River South Forest Reserve, so now more than ever we need to keep the pressure on. Tell the Nigerian government today: spare these protected areas and revise the Environmental Impact Assessment.
