The vegetation, mostly Combretum scrub savanna, is still basically intact. The fauna, typical for the northern Sudan zone, is seriously depleted, mainly because of poaching. The Sahel and northern Sudan zones have always been the most densely populated areas of tropical Africa. The reserve is consequently under heavy pressure, mainly from the semi-nomad pastoralists which have seen the carrying capacity of their traditional grazing grounds north of the Reserve reduced through the extention of agriculture in particular and exhaustion of the Reserve reduced through the extention of agriculture in particular and exhaustion of the soils in general. The proposed management plan should help to preserve this parte of the Sudan zone - the only one in West and Central Africa - with as many avantages for the local population
