New Congo National Park Protecting Gorillas

Sunday, May 19th, 2013

In February of this year, the Republic of Congo announced a new national park that will  protect the critically endangered western lowland gorilla as well as other threatened species.

In 2008, when a population of 125,000 western lowland gorillas were discovered in the northern part of the Congo, the Congolese government pledged to create a protected national park. The Ntokou-Pikounda National Park was created by the government on Dec. 28, 2012, covering an area of 1,765 square miles and includes about 15,000 gorillas, 8000 elephants, and 950 chimpanzees. This is really great news!
