The Problem

to rebuild the empathy that once existed for both fellow citizens and the endangered forest species. This project continues to build on last year’s efforts to help to reinstate and instill empathy and inspire local pride in disadvantaged youth for a natural heritage worth saving.

Our Plan

As part of JGI-DRC’s goals, which are in line with the Conservation Action Plan for Great Apes in Eastern DRC (Strategy 3: Raise awareness and involve the populations in conservation), proposed activities include (1) study tours and exchanges of experiences between protected areas, community forests, and sanctuaries, and (2) implementing an awareness and knowledge program on great apes for targeted communities.
