The instability created by the war in Eastern Congo is posing a huge threat to Virunga National Park. Sadly, periods of conflict are when the rangers’ jobs are most dangerous – and most necessary. At times like these poaching, illegal animal trafficking, and habitat destruction become especially difficult to control. Please help us ensure the basic funding for rangers remains in place. Every $20 donated will keep a ranger in the field for a day. This includes the cost of training, rations, medical care, and uniforms.
Virunga’s rangers have always been willing to do what we have asked of them, so let’s all give them a hand.
