African Savanna

The African Savanna has a wet season for about 5-6 months and a dry season for about 5-6 months. It covers Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Cote D'ivore, Ghana, Togo, Benin, Nigeria, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Sudan, Ethiopia, Somalia, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Angola, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Botswana, and South Africa.

Australian Tropical Savanna

The Australian Tropical Savanna is one of the worlds largest tropical savannas. There are a lot of animals in this savanna. There is dense grass and scattered trees. The savanna spreads across northern Australia. The wet season is 5-6 months and the dry season is 5-6 months.

Terai-Duar Savanna

The Terai-Duar savanna is a narrow lowland at the base of the Himalayas in India. It is 25 kilometres wide and has a total area of 34,500 square kilometres. There is a 5-6 month dry season and a 5-6 month wet season.

There are many threats to the savanna biome, but I am going to focus on two:

  • Mining: Many operating stone quarries have been observed in India. The mining destroys the landscape, which takes several hundred years to recover. But, abandoned mines create a habitat because they are ideal spots for fox dens.
  • Bunding/Trenching: Bunding and Trenching has completely changed some large areas of the savanna, killing plant life, and exposing the ground to erosion, leading to a higher run off of rain water.


  • Trees: Trees protect the savanna by absorbing odors and pollutant gases, cleaning the air for animals. They also filter particulates out of the air by trapping them on bark and leaves.
  • Soil Protection: Experts are educating people on how to protect the soil and prevent soil erosion.
  • Windbreaks: People are planting trees as windbreaks to prevent wind erosion.


  • Dryness: The savanna is really dry, which leads to a lot of wildfires. The fires burn the small bit of vegetation that still remain in the savanna. Humans have made the dirt even worse by farming it. Also, with the biome so dry there is not a lot of water, so the animals will die of dehydration, and might become extinct.
