Virunga National Park, Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Virunga National Park is one of the most biologically diverse protected areas on the planet. It is also a geologic wonder and contains two of the world’s most active volcanoes. Sadly, much of its history has been plagued by violence however there are signs of hope. This is thanks to all the men and woman of the park who bravely risk their lives every day protecting it and its inhabitants and all of those who have donated or visited. The pictures here aim to give an idea of the park's beauty and those who depend on the parks revenue to survive.
UPDATE: Sadly the park was forced to close their doors due to the deteriorating security situation. Hopefully they will reopen after the election but until then they could use your support. If you care to help Andre, the orphans and the rest of the brave men and women of the park here’s the link to the Park - https://virunga.org/donate/.
