Abstract: Mali still has a few difficult to access areas with natural relics rich in wildlife, such as the Nafadji forest, indigenous protected by populations. The objective of the study is to count the wildlife resource of this forest and to analyze their condition. Kings method has been used to wildlife inventory. A survey was conducted among the populations and the technical services to understand the fauna situation and the management difficulties. In total, 366 individuals divided between 14 species, 10 families and 5 orders were identified with a female?s proportion of 55% of higher than that of males. Adult species represent 51%, subadults 27%, young 10%. The Papio anubis species (25.37%) and Erythrocebus patas (17.91%) are the most abundant, followed by Phacochoerus aethiopicus, Canis adustus, Sylvicapra grimmia and Gazella dorcas. The analysis also reveals that habitat and food factors play an important role in the wildlife distribution. Controlling these factors is therefore essential for the effective management of wildlife and its habitat. The involvement of the Nafadji population and hamlets alone is not enough to ensure the wildlife protection, but it will require close collaboration with communities, technical services and other stakeholders in the forest.
