Marahoué National Park is a national park in Côte d'Ivoire. It was established in 1968, and covers 1000 km².[1] However, it has lost 93 percent of its forest cover in the last six years. These habitats have been damaged and occupied by people, they are no longer suitable for chimpanzees or any other animals.[2][3]
