Tanzania's remaining fragments of coastal forests support rich biological communities, but these are extremely vulnerable to exploitation and land-use pressures because of their very limited size. Until recently little attention has been paid to these areas and and it is probable that all the most important forest areas have not yet even been recognized. Conservation measures are needed urgently and while these have been incorporated into the Tanzanian Forestry Action Plan, funding has not been identified.
