Gabon: The Minkebe Programme
One of Africa's most untouched rainforests
It is home to one of the largest populations of forest elephants in Africa as well as gorillas, chimpanzees, leopards and many other species.
While human activity in Minkebe is relatively minimal, logging and mining are expanding.
Unique biodiversityWWF works with the Gabonese government, the private sector and communities to protect the area's unique biodiversity and promote the effective management of natural resources.
WWF also works for the transborder conservation initiative called TRIDOM, which aims to protect contiguous parks in Cameroon (Dja) Congo (Odzala) and Gabon (Minkebe).
