Park Headquarters Destroyed by Bandits
In Epulu, Democratic Republic of Congo

Funds Needed to Help Rebuild and Resume Conservation of Wildlife

The Okapi Faunal Reserve is the most important place for the conservation of eastern chimpanzees, supporting about 4,500 individuals along with okapi and forest elephants.  It is also home to the largest remaining hunter-gatherer community in Africa, the Mbuti people.

WCS helped to create the reserve in 1992 and has since helped DRC’s parks department, ICCN (Institut Congolaise pour la Conservation de Nature), to manage it with assistance from USAID-CARPE and USFWS.

The reserve, including its wildlife and livelihoods of local people, are increasingly threatened by rampant illegal poaching, ivory trafficking, and gold mining.

WCS currently remains in Epulu and your tax-deductable donation will help to rebuild the park headquarters destroyed in the attack.
