UC Nigerian Field Station
UC's most remote field station is based next to the amazingly diverse and ecological important Ngel Nyaki Forest Reserve in Nigeria. This reserve contains montane (highland) forest, which is now very rare in West Africa. At the field station a wide range of scientific research including: seed dispersal, pollination, stream insect communities and gentetice of the local Chimpanzee population is underway.
To find out more about the field station and the area, visit the The Nigerian Montane Forest Project website.
A Controlled Area notice has been issued for the South Island. People using rivers and lakes must comply with this notice.
To ensure you do not spread Didymo, wherever possible restrict equipment, boats, clothing, and other items for exclusive use in a single waterway.
If you are moving items between waterways visit: Cleaning Methods (Biosecurity NZ) for cleaning instructions.
