This closed canopy Atlas Cedar forest is situated in the Middle Atlas Mountains of the Meknès-Tafilalet region. This forest is part of the very restricted relict range of the endangered Barbary Macaque, a number of whom I sighted within this habitat. This habitat is undergoing degradation, primarily from overgrazing activity, which is readily observable from the number of livestock animals and the poor condition of understory vegetation.
