Edumanom National Forest, Nigeria
The 100 m false-colour image of 29 December 2015 shows us Edumanom National Forest, Nigeria, an area in the Niger Delta region of southeast Nigeria. The reserve is a freshwater swamp forest with an area of 9,324 hectares. The habitat has been degraded by oil-industry and logging operations. Although there are relatively few roads in the region, hunters can gain access to the forest through the creeks and along oil pipelines. The forest is also under threat from expansion of oil palm plantations. A proposed federal road from Ogbia to Nembe would run between two of the patches inhabited by chimps in the Edumanom forest. Deposited sediment is visible by the greenish colours in the river's mouth.
