New African Reserve Protects Bonobos, Stores Carbon

Date : 27th November 2007, Source : ENN



Conservation groups and the government of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) have announced the establishment of a new reserve to protect the endangered bonobo, a great ape found only in the DRC’s vast tropical forests. “This is a monumental step towards saving a significant portion of the world’s second largest rainforest, of critical importance to the survival not only of humankind’s closest great ape relative, the bonobo, but to all life on Earth given the increasing threat of climate change,” said Sally Jewell Coxe, president of the Bonobo Conservation Initiative (BCI) a partner in creating the new reserve.
