Malian ecoregions

Mali is a large country in north Africa that encompasses part of the huge Sahara desert in the north, the Sahel grasslands in its centre and to the south, a vast savannah region. From the majestic Inner Niger delta (a huge rain-dependent inland delta that flows south-west) to the most arid desert dunes, ecoregions of Mali are at constant battle with drought and continue to be heavily-influenced by climate change and pastoralism.
