Cross – River State in Nigeria unfolds a captivating story of rich forestry, natural beauty, and unparalleled biodiversity. The unique terrain, characterized by rugged mountains and rolling hills, provides a stunning backdrop to the state’s ecological treasure.

Enchanting Forestry:

Endowed with lush and diverse forests, Cross-River State’s natural allure goes beyond aesthetics. These verdant landscapes play a crucial role in maintaining the delicate balance of ecological systems.

Biodiversity at Risk:

The threat to this pristine environment is palpable. The iconic Cross – River National Park, a bastion of the state’s biodiversity, faces imminent peril from illegal logging. Home to a diverse array of species, including primates like gorillas and drills, as well as a plethora of bird species, this sanctuary is at risk due to habitat loss.

Challenges Along the Obudu – Vandeikya Road:

Recent developments along the picturesque Obudu – Vandeikya road amplify these concerns. A troubling video posted by SafaaMUAdam/X exposes the stark reality of deforestation. Trucks laden with wood, destined for export, traverse this scenic route, posing a direct challenge to the very essence of Cross – River State’s identity.

Global Responsibility:

Despite these challenges, Cross – River State stands as a sanctuary of natural beauty. The imperative to preserve this rich biodiversity extends far beyond local concerns—it is a global responsibility. The state’s unique terrain serves as a reminder of the interconnectedness of all ecosystems.

Call to Conservation:

In the face of these pressing challenges, urgent and collaborative conservation efforts are imperative. Strengthening initiatives involving local authorities, environmental organizations, and the community is crucial to enforce sustainable forestry practices and curb illegal activities.

Cross – River State’s natural wonders beckon not just as a local treasure but as a global heritage that demands protection. The time to act is now—preserving the state’s rich forestry and biodiversity is not merely an option; it is an obligation for the well-being of our planet and future generations.
