How come nigeria dont have wild lifes like kenya and south africa does.
How come nigeria dont have wild lifes like kenya and south africa does.
It is said that some animals eg. the giraffe used to roam over the entire continent. Then climatic change occured, the Sahara desert began to expand and most wildlife ceased to roam much of north Africa (in this case Northern Nigeria.)

Also East and Southern Africa have vast expanses of savannah grasslands and woodlands in which most of Africas large mammals seem to thrive in. Nigeria may have less of these savannah grasslands as I think the south of the country is quite heavily settled by people (Farms,oil mining activities and cities).

Wase Rock located some 216 kilometers South-East of Jos in Wase Town is a beautiful, massive dome-shaped inselberg and stands at a staggering height 450 meters. According to available records, it is one of the only five breeding places for the Rossy (White pelican birds in Africa). The government now protects about 321 acres of land around the rock as a bird sanctuary and for wildlife development.
