Wildlife-watching species richness (grid)
Where can the most iconic safari-wildlife species be found?
The grid layer represent a richness index of top wildlife watching species/groups, including Rhinos, Elephant, Lion, Leopard, Buffalo, Giraffe, Lowland and Mountain Gorilla, Chimpanzees, Bonobo, Sifaka, Ringtails, Aye-Aye, Mouse lemurs and Colobus. Number of occurring species/groups is weighted by specific scores of attractiveness and encounter easiness and calculated over a 0.5degrees-mesh grid. This indicator includes terrestrial species only, therefore it underestimates countries hosting attractive coastal and marine species watching.
