Eco-volunteering in Benin

Eco-volunteering in Benin

Located in West Africa, Benin is one of the smallest countries in Africa (110 620 km²). Its south coast extends 124 kilometers wide, while from north to south - from the Niger River to Benin Bay - it stretches over 672 kilometers long.
The country is subdivided into five natural regions: a coastal region; An area of ​​trays; Another plateau covered with savannah trees; A chain of small mountains, the Atakora, to the northwest, which culminates at 658 meters and encompasses the water reservoir of Benin and Niger; And the fertile Niger plain to the northeast.
Intensive agricultural practices, destruction of forests, desertification and poaching have impoverished the fauna and flora of Benin. There are, however, two national parks (Pendjari and W) in the north of the country. In the south, immense plantations of palm trees and coconut trees border the coast.
