Dispatches from Central Africa!
Keeping endangered species safe from poachers is a difficult task, but some places Central African are having success. The Dzanga Sangha protected area in southeastern Central African Republic is one such standout. WWF works in Dzanga Sangha training rangers, supporting sustainable livelihoods, and helping habituate gorillas for ecotourism.
Carlos Drew, our global species program director, visited Dzanga Sangha to find out why this area is so special.
