The Republic of Liberia, a country in West Africa has long been disturbed by internal strife and poverty. The country was interestingly founded by United States for the freed slaves who were sent to Liberia instead of their ancestral homelands. These slaves left United States in hope of a more free life and a higher social standing in their new home. Liberia is a small country in West Africa and has Sierra Leone to its west, Ivory Coast to the east and and Guinea to the north. To the south is the Atlantic Ocean. Liberia has an area of 111,369 square kilometres (43,000 sq mi) and has a population of around 4 million. Liberian coastline is mostly formed of mangroves and the inland is thinly populated and has forests leading to drier grassland plateau. Of the remaining Upper Guinean Forest, Liberia holds roughly 40 percent. Liberia is one of the more bio-diverse locations of the world. The wildlife however, is threatened by excessive human consumption as bush meat. The climate is typically equatorial with rainy season lasting from May to October.
