Elephants Vanish in Congo Reserve

General March 1, 2013

Elephants Vanish in Congo ReserveThe Okapi Faunal Reserve was thought to be a safe haven for forest elephants in the otherwise conflict-stricken eastern region of the Democratic Republic of Congo. But a new report finds that unabated poaching has sent the population into serious decline.
