Conversely, some species more than three million years old may have experiences warmer temperatures than those expected in the coming decades and may therefore be able to adapt [ 56 ].

It is currently estimated that 30% of the Congo rainforest will have disappeared by 2030, unless action is taken to lower deforestation rates and to reduce logging concessions. The forest is home to a wealth of biodiversity with over 10,000 species of plant, 30% of which are found only in the region, 400 species of mammal, 700 species of fish and 1,000 species of bird, according to WWF epub. However, the rest of the watershed is pristine: this is the only coastal temperate rain forest watershed of this size, possibly in the world, with so little development. The information gathered to date on the ecological character, distribution and status of coastal temperate rain forests, while relatively sparse, represents a needed start on the path toward informed management and conservation of these areas The National Geographic Magazine.
