Conservation and protection of the biodiverse Conkouati-Douli National Park
Within the lush landscapes of Congo, the Conkouati-Douli National Park stands as a vital sanctuary for endangered forest elephants, apes, and turtles. However, this haven faces a mounting threat from illegal mining, logging, encroachment, and poaching activities. Parcs de Noé has taken up the mantle to safeguard this precious biodiversity and invites collaborators to join this beautiful area.
The project revolves around the preservation of the park’s expansive 300,000 ha of terrestrial ecosystems, including forests on peatland and wetlands. The strategy includes rigorous patrolling efforts to limit illegal activities while also integrating community development programs within specific economic zones.
A bastion of biodiversity, the Conkouati-Douli National Park hosts diverse forests, wetlands, and savannahs. By supporting Parcs de Noé, we contribute to the preservation of this natural heritage and reinforce a future where ecological equilibrium and human activities coexist harmoniously.
