We are congratulating the strength from everyone of us, from this country and outside the country, who are so delighted and determined to support this environmental program. We hope we can go this way until our ideal reaches the hearts of the local people and we also hope that it will give a chance to the eastern lowland gorillas to live peacefully with a brighter future.
The Agro forestry high school is very rare in the entire South Kivu Province although the deforestation is taking place on a higher pace. It means that the gorillas and their habitat is so endangered that nobody knows if they will be able to live up to the middle of this century.
Along with this education program, POPOF staff have been mobilizing the communities for planting trees in the vicinity of the Kahuzi-Biega National Park as it had no buffer zone at the time of the park’s establishment in 1970.
