Bijagos Archipelago Tourism and Investment

Biodiversity

This unique and rich cultural life is also responsible for the preservation of the islands’ breathtaking biodiversity, with trees, beaches and even whole islands designated as sacred and out of bounds. The greatest threat to this unique region today is not tourism, which remains sparse here, but evangelical churches that are actively recruiting members.

For now, though, the islands are home to a huge range of ecosystems, from mangroves to coastal savannah and palm forests, and are hopping with unique wildlife. Rare but elusive saltwater hippos can sometimes be spotted swimming along the shoreline and even between the islands (Orango Island is a good place to track them), and the archipelago is home to the largest colony of green sea turtles on the Atlantic coast of Africa.
