Friday, January 23, 2009 the Virunga National Park

Virunga National Park is the website of the Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. It is one of the few remaining domains of the mountain gorilla and where they under the protection of scientists and lightly armed park rangers. The rangers and others there work quite hard under the most difficult circumstances (one, Ranger Safari Kakule, was killed by militia fighters a couple of weeks ago). My kids give (well, it is more of a payroll deduction) part of their allowance to support the protection of the gorillas in the park. You can follow the link to their site and blogs, etc.
