Nouabalé-Ndoki

This is where I live and what I work to protect.

Described by National Geographic as “one of the last truly wild places on earth” Nouabalé-Ndoki National Park in northern Congo encompasses one of the most pristine tracts of rainforest in central Africa. The Park protects important populations of threatened wildlife including forest elephants, western lowland gorillas, chimpanzees, African grey parrots and bongo antelope. Forest clearings, locally referred to as ‘bais’, unique to the lowland rainforest of the region are scattered through the forest offering a rare window into the behaviour of forest wildlife normally hidden in the forest undergrowth.

Stay tuned. More to come soon. Articles (hopefully), photos (definitely).

Credits for the great video to my colleagues Zanne Labuschagne and Forrest Hogg.

Having an "office job" isn't so bad when occasionally your desk is a speedboat on a Congo river. Everyday wonders of the rainforest #4 Multi-coloured, giant grasshoppers. It's caterpillar season in the Congo Basin, which means that there is seasonal speciality on the menu. This photo was taken in a local market. Dinner anyone?
