Good news on World Bonobo Day
Between 2015 and 2018, ICCN (Institut Congolais pour la Conservation de la Nature), Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich (LMU), Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Leipzig (MPI EVAN), Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), Worldwide Fund for Nature (WWF) and Zoological Society of Milwaukee (ZSM) surveyed Salonga National Park. The surveys confirm Salonga as DRC’s stronghold for around 15,000 bonobos and 1,600 forest elephants. With data collected in 2017 and 2018 in the southern sector of Salonga National Park, using multiple and innovative data collection methods, for the first time a baseline data was established for rare or cryptic species such as pangolins, aardvarks, golden cats, water chevrotains and Congo peafowl. Get a glimpse of the scientist’s work in this short video.
