The lagoons Sakumo and Djange are two of the many coastal lagoons in Ghana which provide valuable resources to the local communities and offer important roosting, nesting and feeding habitats for several thousands of birds.
The Centre for African Wetlands (CAW) in Ghana has recently finalized its project co-funded by AEWA entitled “Priority setting and conservation of migratory waterbird species at key coastal sites in Ghana”. The project aimed at gaining a better understanding of trends in populations of waterbird species, reviewing the importance of Ghana’s coastal wetlands for waterbirds as well as advocating enhanced management of designated Ramsar sites and protection of other key sites for waterbirds.
