The Diverse Biodiversity of Eritrea Is a National Treasure

Large animals like the elephant, African wild ass, leopard, and ostrich are recognized as important animals that are well known to Eritreans. Small animals are also part of the biodiversity of Eritrea and most people are not aware that some of these small animals were first described scientifically from Eritrea as long ago as the 1830s. Several species are found nowhere in the world except Eritrea and are thus “National Treasures” that must be protected, studied, and appreciated.The Ministry of Agriculture, the Ministry of Marine Resources, the Ministry of Water, Land, and Environment and other governmental organizations continue to conduct wildlife surveys in each of Eritrea’s six Zobas so that all Eritrean wildlife can be identified and protected from potentially harmful human activities.
