Save the Congo Efforts Underway
November 20, 2001
In the Congo’s central Gabon Langoue Forest, giant elephants and gorillas are abundant. Unfortunately, the jungle is slated to be logged at the beginning of 2002. A community conservation effort, “Save the Congo” is underway to raise the 3.6 million needed to purchase logging rights to the forest and create a national park.
