“The Delta du Saloum National park (Senegal) mangrove swamp, although threatened by an excessive exploitation, shows yet a diverse fauna of large mammals. Certain species of large and medium herbivore (Manatee) or carnivore (white cheeks Otter, swamp Mongoose, which consume essentially fishes, eggs, mollusks and shellfishes) Mammals are there enfeoffed. The small nocturnal carnivores (Mongooses, Wildcat, Genets) feed on fishes, invertebrates and small birds. As a result of the increase of the human pressure, new species included this particular environment in their home range. Our study, led in 1975-1976, showed that Green Monkeys adapted well to this habitat. They stay there up to 80 % of their time and feed on different parts of Rhizophora trees and prey on Uca tangeri crabs. Sitatunga, that one thought extinct in Senegal since thirty years, was rediscovered there during the 1998 IRD-DPN-DEFCC-IUCN census, in very small and fragmented populations. This demonstrates the efficiency of mangrove swamps as refuge. More recently, new species (Patas monkey, Bushbuck, and Warthog since about ten years ; Guinea fowl and especially Red Colobus for about five years) enter the mangrove swamp and find there protection against disturbances caused by man. Their predators, Civet and Hyena, follow them there. Sitatunga and Red Colobus survive in particularly confined and fragmented populations. Climatic change (dryness) and especially anthropisation (loss of continental habitats through deforestation, human activities disturbances) affected the mangrove swamp ecosystem which saw, in a short time, an increase of the large vertebrates diversity. This increase is however misleading, because it is only due to concentration of threatened species in their last refuge.
