In 1987 we set up our Congo gorilla protection project in Brazzaville, six years later we set up a protected area of wilderness in the forests of Congo, where we could send rescued gorillas.
We protect 1M acres of wilderness known as the Bateke Plateau, where we have reintroduced over 70 critically endangered western lowland gorillas. These gorillas have thrived in our sanctuary, family groups have been formed and at the end of 2018 we had seen 35 successful wild gorilla births.
The Bateke Plateau is our flagship conservation project, once an area where wildlife had been driven out due to hunting and poaching, it is now a thriving eco system, where gorillas, forest elephant and even a lion have been spotted.
