Wildlife Wednesdays: Protecting Wildlife and Nature in Africa – Community

People of the Kasugho Community in the Democratic Republic of Congo

It’s impossible to help wildlife – like endangered gorillas in the Democratic Republic of Congo – without the support of the people in nearby communities. GRACE (Gorilla Rehabilitation and Conservation Education Center), the first-ever rehabilitation facility in Africa for rescued orphan eastern gorillas, is located near the Congolese village of Kasugho. The people of Kasugho’s commitment to wildlife and habitat conservation made it a natural choice for the center, and the local community is flourishing, along with GRACE’s gorillas.

The second in a series of three videos on our conservation efforts in the Democratic Republic of Congo focuses on this community of amazing people.
