Biodiversity preservation is a topic of increasing concern as globalization continues to rapidly industrialize even the most remote corners of the planet. Without proper methods of maintaining indigenous habitats and fragile species interactions, the damage done to communities at all species levels will be devastating (Singh). African countries are a source of high levels of endemic species and biodiversity. Loss of such species rich habitat due to human activities as well as climate change is a huge challenge today, and will continue to be in future generations. This is a complicated problem, and one that requires collaboration between political, economical, scientific and social spheres.
