BIODESERTS GROUP PROVIDES SCIENTIFIC SUPPORT TO PARC NATIONAL DE DIAWLING – MAURITANIA
CIBIO-InBIO research group BIODESERTS has been giving support to the management of biodiversity of the park located at Mauritania
 

Within the scope of a collaboration agreement signed in 2015, between CIBIO-InBIO and the Parc National de Diawling (Mauritania), the BIODESERTS group has been providing scientific support to the park for the management of the local crocodile population and other reptiles.
One of the identified threat factors to the crocodile population was the run-over by vehicles circulating along the international dam (bordering with Senegal). The park responded to the researchers’ concerns and installed warning signs to alert drivers for the presence of endangered crocodiles.
The team was very happy that the signs mention the collaboration with CIBIO-InBIO | BIODESERTS group and expects to keep on providing support to the management of biodiversity in the park.
