What will happen to the Bui Hippos? Print E-mail
ImageHippos have survived at Bui because they do not have to compete with people and livestock. When the dam is constructed all their current foraging areas will be flooded and the animals will be forced to move upstream to find food. This will bring them into direct conflict with people because riverine areas outside the park are farmed by people and heavily grazed by domestic animals. The impact of 400 (or 200, according to the most recent surveys commissioned by the Ghanian government) hippos moving into areas inhabited by humans is not difficult to imagine.
