Giving Nature a Voice: Salonga – Africa’s Biggest Rainforest Part 2

Part 2 of our journey to Salonga focuses on Congolese anti-poaching patrols and attempts to wean the local community from the bushmeat trade. In the dramatic conclusion of Salonga: Africa's Biggest Rainforest we focus on Congolese eco-guards and the recent controversy of how they deal with poachers. Rare antelopes, monkeys, and even leopards are all on the menu and unfortunately goods for the commercial market. Conservationists are also trying to wean the local community from the bushmeat trade by promoting a more sustainable way to survive. A film by Olivier Grancher, Katya Katondolo, Andrew Tkach, Patrice Citera. "
