The Grauer’s gorilla, also known as the Eastern Lowland gorilla is endemic to the Democratic Republic of Congo and due to decades of war, poaching, illegal mining etc.’ may be the world’s most threatened gorilla species. Africa 2030 works in cooperation with local conservationists, NGOs and national park authorities, such as the Kahuzi Biega and Maiko national parks, to develop holistic community conservation projects. Some examples include: promoting sustainable gorilla tourism, providing convicted poachers with alternative livelihoods, scientific research and more. The Congo rainforest is the world’s second largest carbon sink and the most pristine rainforest on earth. We are working hard to protect it and support the communities who live around it.
