Bui Hippo Project
Hippos of the Black Volta River Print E-mail
ImageThe hippo (Hippopotamus amphibius) is considered widespread and secure by the IUCN (Eltringham in Oliver 1993). However populations in West Africa have been in decline for at least a hundred years and only 7,000 animals are thought to be left in the entire subcontinent, compared with 150,000 animals in Eastern and Southern Africa.
Monitors of the Black Volta Print E-mail
There are two monitor lizards in Bui National Park, the Nile monitor Varanus niloticus and Bosc's monitor Varanus exathematicus. In Ghana the Nile monitor is completely protected by law. Bosc's monitor is not protected and many of them are caught each year to be shipped to the USA and Europe for the pet trade.

There are at least seven books in print about the savannah monitor, but we think this is the only one worth reading! Last few available

The Butaan Project
Videos from the Butaan Project
butanvideo1.jpgA small collection of videos made by the Butaan Project. It took us three years to get the first moving images of wild butaan. Some recordings are made using camcorders tied to trees and triggered by passive infrared monitors, others are made by volunteers from camouflaged hides.
