The Cross River National Park is one of the richest areas of tropical rainforest in West Africa. The Oban Hills are adjacent to the Korup National Park in Cameroon. The Cross River National Park, together with the Oban Hills, forms the focus of the activities of WWF in Nigeria. Currently, the WWF, the Nigerian Conservation Foundation and the Federal Parks Service are carrying out an integrated conservation and development project in the northern part of the park. The project has created a proper boundary for the park, and programs are being implemented against illegal hunting, logging and land clearance.
