ICCN rangers continue to be engaged in the challenge of locating and arresting poachers in the Okapi Wildlife Reserve. As pressures from a world that has an appetite for ivory and gold mount in this remote region, rangers are finding themselves on the front lines of a ‘war against wildlife’. While elephants across the continent are being persecuted relentlessly, the isolated and remote population of forest elephants that has made the Ituri Forest their home for centuries, have also fallen victim to this appetite for ivory.
In spite of the dangers faced in this time of great insecurity in the Reserve, ICCN rangers are arresting poachers and removing deadly snares from the forest. They could not do this without the support of people around the world that care. Please share this link with friends, family and associates on social media. Together we are making progress in protecting okapi, elephant, and primates in the Okapi Wildlife Reserve.
