Wildlife is also one of the forms of tourism we have in Ghana. Ghana does not have many parks or reserves that harbour different kinds of animals but can boast of some local animal reserves. These local places which serve as reserves are not structured to serve their purpose. Only a few are regulated and generates revenue for the Government. Some of these places are; the Dodowa forest, the forest areas of the Akuapem-Togo range, Shai Hills, among others.
In other parts of Ghana, wildlife is protected and regulated. In the Greater Accra Region, only a few places could be mentioned. These are places in which much attention is not paid to by the central government nor the District Chief Executive. Most of the forest reserves are being depleted.
Urbanization has contributed greatly to the reason why wildlife is going extinct. Bad farming practices have also destroyed the lives of many bush animals. According to some sources. A certain class of animals will be drastically reduced and others may be difficult to find.
Animals can be preserved as a tourist attraction for revenue generation. This can add up to government revenue for the development of the country.
