The conservation of the forests of Mount Oku is the last remaining hope for two species, Bannerman's turaco (Tauraco bannermani, EN) and the banded wattle-eye (Platysteira laticincta, EN), which are restricted to montane forests in the Bamenda-Banso highlands.
The white-fronted wattle-eye (Platysteira albifrons) is endemic to the northernmost part of the coastal belt in this ecoregion.
Other threatened and candidate threatened species found at this site include chimpanzees, yellow-casqued hornbill (Ceratogymna elata), Sharpe’s apalis (Apalis sharpii) and red-cheeked wattle eye (Platysteira blissetti).
