Virunga National Park
 
Virunga National Park

This got listed in the UNESCO World Heritage List and is a protected piece of land. What you will see here are a diversity of Congo's native floras and faunas. Among the most popular animals to see here are its mountain gorillas as well as its hippopotamuses. Virunga National Park formerly known as Albert National Park is one of the most biologically diverse protected areas on the planet. Half of all the biodiversity in sub-Saharan Africa can be found in Virunga. The park is also a geologic wonder and contains two of the world’s most active volcanoes. The park was founded primarily to protect the mountain gorillas living in the forests of the Virunga Massif that were controlled by the Belgian Congo. Later, Virunga was expanded north to include the Rwindi Plains, Lake Edward, and the Rwenzori Mountains. Virunga National Park is unrivaled in its diversity of landscapes and ecosystems.

A team of Virunga National Park rangers and staff set up a sting operation at Goma Airport to arrest a trafficker and save a baby gorilla. A member of the park staff poses as the buyer. Wildlife trafficking is just one of the many threats to the animals that live in the park and one of the many challenges faced by rangers.
