Description: This park is one of Western Africa’s largest protected areas and it is distinguished by its great plant diversity. Comoé River, which runs through the site, is responsible for the site’s extraordinary plants that are usually only found much farther south, for instance shrub savannahs and patches of thick rainforest. --WHMNet paraphrase from the description at WHC Site, where additional information is available.
  Comoé National Park is a national park in Côte d'Ivoire as well as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since its inscription in 1983. It was initially added due to the diversity of plant life present around the Comoé River. In 2003 it was added to the list of World Heritage Sites in Danger due to poaching, over-grazing of the park by cattle, and absence of management. --Wikipedia.
