Boni and Dodori Reserves

Boni National Reserve is over 1,300 square kilomteres, and is slightly inland from the coastline. It lies alongside the national border with Somalia. It  is a forest reserve, which was established in 1976 to provide sanctuary for elephants in the region. A number of rare mammals and birds can also be found here.

Dodori Narional Reserve is the smaller of the two (approximately 870 square kilomteres), and runs adjacent to the coastline and the Kiunga Marine National Reserve. It is named after the Dodori River which flows into the ocean at Dodori Creek and was established in 1976 providing sanctuary for a huge array of marine life including sea-turtles, dugongs, giant clams, and nesting birds.
