Virunga: the quest to protect Africa's oldest national park

On 11th June 2014 SOCO announced that it will leave Virunga National Park and remain out of all other UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Government champions, communities within DRC and supporters worldwide joined together to help remove this immediate threat to Africa's oldest national park.

Now we must continue to work together to ensure that the park remains free from future threats. You can still show your support at https://www.wwf.org.uk/virunga
