Tree Planting, DR Congo
The Gorilla Organization aims to protect the habitat of the endangered eastern lowland gorilla by promoting tree-growing in the communities around the Kahuzi-Biega National Park, DR Congo. The establishment of a buffer zone not only separates the forest and local farmland, but also provides local communities with a source of firewood and timber so they no longer have to rely on the trees of the forest.
