Current work has a focus on the conservation of a newly-discovered population of little-known okapi (the closest known relative of the giraffe) in the forests of the northern sector of Virunga National Park.
Through the combined efforts of NGOs, ICCN and other partners, we hope that the integrity of Virunga National Park can be restored. The park’s biological riches can make a vital economic contribution to development and positive results from conservation efforts are beginning to emerge.
