We are deeply saddened to hear about the recent killing of five Virunga National Park rangers and one driver. The group were ambushed, reportedly by one of eastern Congo's MaiMai militia groups, while protecting Africa's oldest national park. The deaths bring the number of Virunga rangers killed on duty to 175. For those wanting to help, we suggest donating to Virunga's Fallen Rangers Fund, which supports the families the rangers left behind. (📷 @virunganationalpark)

I want to give a massive shout out to the team behind Virunga National Park for keeping me safe during my visit to the park. I also want to thank the heroes of conservation, the rangers. These rangers are risking their lives everyday to protect our natural world. 6 rangers lost their life protecting the park on Monday the 9th of April. One of the biggest losses in Virunga's history. I met with their friends and colleagues this past few days and as raw and confronting as it was, they are still working hard to save Virunga and are hopeful that they can save the park for future generations. Virunga has a very special place in my heart and I found myself quite overwhelmed at times. Unfortunately most countries do not advise you to travel to DRC and you will not be able to acquire travel insurance. I hope this changes in the future... and I hope that this will not stop you from visiting and supporting their conservation efforts. Please get in touch if you would like more info on visiting and I will steer you in the right direction :)

CONGO DAY 1: Came face-to-rear with a silverback. We managed to escape unharmed, despite suffering through an hour of recurrent and pungent gorilla farts. If you’re looking for a place to see large, hairy animals doing the strangest human-like things, look no further than the DRC. . . . #DRC #congo #goma #virunga #virunganationalpark #gorillatrek #gorrillasofinstagram #backpackingafrica #tia #glt #girlslovetravel #travelnoire

Sorry Mom. I know I promised you that I would not visit the Democratic Republic of Congo during my Africa trip, but I had to. My two favorite experiences from backpacking in Africa are both from the DRC. I will be sharing photos over the next few days from the Volcano and Gorilla Trek in Virunga National Park. - This photo was taken from the volcano trek. Although we hiked during rainy season, there was no rain on our 5 hour hike up, and no rain on the way down. So lucky! The hike itself was a lot easier than expected. I read blogs talking about how hard the hike was, but we went at a good pace and had plenty of stops to rest. My photo tomorrow will show you why this hike is worth it. - So let's talk about safety while traveling. The DRC shows up on many lists for "World's Most Dangerous Countries", so am I an idiot for visiting? No. Yes, there is a lot of conflict in this country, and yes there are certain parts that definitely aren't safe, but Goma and the south section of Virunga National Park are safe for tourists. If safety became an issue for tourists then Virunga would not allow anyone to go on the treks. Also the park needs our tourism dollars to help conserve and protect it from poachers. - I met some of the most helpful people in the DRC like John-Paul (from couchsurfing) who is from Goma and he was literally amazing! He helped organize our visas, picked us up from the border, organzied cheaper taxis and hotels for us, answered all our questions, and was genuinely nice and pleasant to be around. We talked openly about the political and social situations challenging the DRC. In his opinion the government does not provide anything for it's people. JP would love to visit the USA, and I would like to help him sort out a visa, but it seems like a hard visa to obtain. Any suggestions? #visitdrc #visitcongo #virunganationalpark #virunga #democraticrepublicofcongo #nyiragongo #followthefro . . . . #teamkaptainkenny #thetravelwomen #travelinladies #starttheadventure #girlsborntotravel #blackpassportstamps #blackgirlstraveltoo #weworktotravel #radgirlslife #girlsabroad #thediscoverer #volcanohike #thisisafrica

Hanno dato la loro vita per la terra che amavano e difendevano. Cinque #ranger del Parco Nazionale di #Virunga, nella Repubblica Democratica del #Congo, sono stati assassinati in un’imboscata mentre svolgevano il loro compito primario: salvaguardare la sopravvivenza dell’ultima grande comunità di #gorilla di montagna. Virunga è la riserva più antica dell’Africa: 7800 km quadrati di foreste da più di novant’anni al centro di conflitti etnici, interessi commerciali e bracconaggio. A Virunga perse la vita Dian Fossey, la celebre zoologa statunitense uccisa dai cacciatori di frodo per aver fatto conoscere al mondo intero quello spicchio di terra remoto difeso da un manipolo di ambientalisti guerrieri. Solo negli ultimi 20 anni sono morti sulle montagne 170 rangers. Tutte vittime dei #bracconieri, dei gruppi armati ribelli e delle milizie Mai Mai che rivendicano quella zona, da sempre abitata dei grandi primati in via di estinzione. Una statistica agghiacciante che ha fatto “guadagnare” al parco la reputazione di “progetto di conservazione tra i più pericolosi del mondo”. I ranger sono reclutati dai villaggi che circondano la riserva. La maggior parte di essi sono giovanissimi (tra i 20 e i 30 anni), sposati con molti bambini. Grazie al loro lavoro di salvaguardia la popolazione di gorilla è cresciuta fino a raggiungere i 1000 individui. Un risultato straordinario che ora rende ancora più drammatica la notizia della loro tragica fine. #vegan #veg #freeanimals #animalrights #govegan #veganchoice #specismo #meatismurder #animalismo #animalisti #freejohndoe #veggie #veganism #animalabuse #animal #whatveganseat #veganlife #veganforanimals #truth #compassion

⚠️ 6 of these Virunga Rangers were KILLED this month in the DRC Virunga Park while protecting this wildlife sanctuary and the gorillas families. I was lucky to met them in 2017. They protected me.

#Virunga National Park pilot and animal sanctuary, rescue a baby chimp in the Republic of Congo. During the process of the rescue, pilot Anthony Caere posted a clip of the baby chimp exploring the cockpit before falling asleep on his lap. The gentle chimp received the kind and loving care from pilot Mr. Caere and the caregivers at Lwiro Primates sanctuary. The sweet chimp named,"Mussa" was rescued from an unfortunate situation and has been receiving medical attention. In addition, Mussa is currently enjoying the company of four other baby #chimps at the #sanctuary. Director Itsaso Velez del Burgo stated, " He is a beautiful chimp! His eye expression is special." We wish that all live a soulful life, filled with love and joy. For more uplifting news, please visit www.SupremeMasterTV.com

This rudimentary structure is actually a toilet at 3,470m. As you groggily emerge from your tent on the rim of a volcano, your first challenge of the day will be to use a rope to stumble down a jagged cliff face to that toilet shed. Inside, you find a wooden ledge with a hole in the middle, which given the circumstances you consider quite luxurious (providing you don't get splinters). Settling yourself down, you gaze out through the open door at the sunrise, the parklands stretching into the distance and glinting golden at first light.  Never have you felt so existential while sitting on a toilet. #congo #virunga #drc #epictoilet #gowithoutaguide

So inspiring! Angèle is a ranger in the DRC’s Virunga NP and just finished her first marathon today in London under 4 hours! She ran to raise money and awareness for the dangerous but important conservation work her and her fellow rangers do. Most of her training was spent in ranger boots! Head over to their page to see their awesome story. #Repost @virunganationalpark with @get_repost ・・・ She did it!!!!! Angèle has completed the @londonmarathon with an incredible time of 3:51:42. Under 4 hours! She is in high spirits and we are so unbeliviably proud of her! Thank you to everyone who came down to cheer her on, and there is still time to donate!

Happy Earth Day! In honor of it, I would like to highlight again the heroic work of the Virunga National Park @virunganationalpark in DR Congo. Led by Emmanuel de Morode, the park’s staff are fighting corrupt oil companies who are trying to drill in the park, violent rebels who have already killed more than 170 rangers, and extreme poverty which has led to a volatile humanitarian and political situation. Their fight is not only to save the endangered mountain gorillas, but to save our planet. . . 📷 @terrance.j.williams . . . . . #awesomeearth #virunga #virunganationalpark @virunganationalpark #beautifuldestinations #natgeoyourshot #doyoutravel #bestplacestogo #natgeotravel #nakedplanet #ourdailyplanet #earthofficial #keepitwild #exploremore #natgeotravelpic #earthpix #wonderfulplaces #traveldeeper #wildlifephotography #globetrotter #conservation #gorilla #bbctravelshow #travelphotography #passionpassport #justgoshoot #theglobewanderer #livetravelchannel #travelstoke #lonelyplanet

INTO THE WILD // Volcanoes National Park is the largest mountain gorilla habitat on earth and it has put Rwanda on the tourists' map again. The park is home to five of the eight magnificent volcanoes of the Virunga Mountains. One & Only group has just started to develop a new line of nature resorts here in Rwanda with two brand-new hotels: Nyungwe House and Gorilla Nest. Bisate Eco Lodge, on the other hand, is another amazing property managed by famous safari outfitter Wilderness Safaris. Gorilla trekking, during which you can observe gorillas with their families in the wild nature, is a must! 🦍🌄 DOĞANIN ÇAĞRISI // Yeryüzündeki en büyük dağ gorili habitatına sahip Volcanoes National Park, Ruanda'yı yeniden gezginleri ajandasına koymayı başarmış. Virunga Dağları bünyesindeki sekiz volkandan beşi burada. One&Only otel grubu, şimdiden burada Nyungwe House ve Gorilla Nest adlı iki yeni otel açarak yeni bir doğa otelleri serisine yatırım yapmaya başladı bile. Afrika'nın önde gelen safari organizatörlerinden Wilderness Safaris ise Bisate Eco Lodge adlı harika bir safari kampı ile kervana katılıyor.

This might be the most important thing I put on @instagram. These films have changed my life because I was ignorant for a long time. I certainly don't know everything but these films made me need to learn more and led me to change in many ways. Here's the short version: my wife and I fell in love with scuba diving on our honeymoon. Experiencing this whole new world beneath the surface was incredible. Naturally, when we got home, I wanted more. Getting my first scuba cert wasn't enough. I wanted to be surrounded by the ocean all the time. So, I started watching documentaries about the ocean. First, #PlanetEarth, then #BluePlanet, and one after another, until I found @racingextinction. I had no idea one film and one message would affect me so deeply. The thing I'd come to love - the ocean - was dying. The ocean, the animals, the whole planet, really. And it took that movie for me to see it. I watched it at least 20 times. I had to go deeper. I researched and watched more. The Cove, Mission Blue, Cowspiracy, Virunga, What The Health, Before The Flood, The Ivory Game, Chasing Coral... I had to make a change. Start with 1 thing... First, meatless Mondays. Then, no beef. Then, meatless, period. Straight vegetarian. That was almost 3 years ago. The point is that I was willfully ignorant, and lived life that way. If I chose not to listen or learn or care, I'm not obligated to do anything, right? Wrong. Now, I know. And yeah, it kinda sucks. In March, the last male white rhino died. The last one. There won't be any more. They're gone. At the beginning of 2017, there were about 30 vaquita left in the world - the world's smallest porpoise. Now, there are about 12 . The ocean could cover the Maldives soon, not to mention Miami. The Great Barrier Reef is dying. 90% of the world's sharks are gone. The Leuser Ecosystem in Sumatra is being cleared out for palm oil (the crap in snack foods that's already killing you from the inside). The only place in the world where orangutans, rhinos, tigers and elephants coexist, might be gone soon, too. There's certainly some good happening, thanks to those who care but we could all do more. Please do. #startwith1thing #earthday

If I had to choose one animal we share this planet with as my favorite, the choice would be simple. Gorillas have always held a special place in my heart. Their intelligence and gentle nature never cease to amaze me. Unfortunately, they are considered critically endangered. I hope and pray that the senseless poaching of these beautiful creatures ends before it’s too late. I highly recommend watching the documentary on Virunga National Park that is currently on Netflix. The lengths that the protectors of this park go to try to safeguard these animals will amaze you and also break your heart. We must all try harder to protect our planet and all that inhabit it. Happy Earth Day🌿🌍💚

🌱 GREEN, FOR EARTH DAY 🌱 The thing about rainforests is they are SUPERGREEN. It sounds obvious, but my eyes literally could not compute the level of greenness. + It’s basic photosynthesis: they are the lungs of this planet and they’re green because they do their job really really well. We need them like we need oxygen...because they’re the ones making the oxygen. Plus, they’re phenomenal. They’re like this crazy lab for the richest of Earth’s animal life experiments. I mean - have you seen pics of poison dart frogs? Or looked at an Orangutang’s face? There are 40 different kinds of Toucan for goodness sake. Nature REALLY went to town there. + As we all know though, the planet’s rainforests aren’t in great shape. It sucks. But here’s the good news: we can do something about that. + There are some incredible groups of people like us systematically buying up, protecting and saving rainforests all over the world. Acre by acre. Hectare by hectare. Pushing back the tide of deforestation so that our kids and their kids and their kids might still live on planet where they know what it feels like to just #seegreen. + So this #earthday I wanted to shout out two of them. First, @rainforesttrust who have protected 18 million hectares of rainforest globally since 1988, working with leading conservationists and local communities to buy up and save forests all over the world. And second, @treesisters_official , a women-led movement with the single-minded goal to plant 1 billion tropical trees, working with women in Kenya, India and Brazil to plant and grow new rainforests. + It’s good stuff. More green please. Let’s see more green. #seetherainforestfor #rainforests #conservation #environmental #planetlove #savetherainforests #nature #lovenature #green #naturalworld #lombok #indonesia #madagascar #kenya #brazil #amazon #palmoilfree #rwanda #virunga #janegoodall #loveherwild #savetheplanet #wwf #forests #bushcraft #woods #woodland #treelife

The @virunganationalpark is home to the critically endangered mountain gorilla and several other species. In 2007, five gorillas from the Rugendo family were murdered. Since then, the park has undergone various institutional and security reforms. Virunga’s ranger force is dedicated to protecting these gorillas and all the animals who call the park home. Several of the rangers have lost their lives in the line of duty. This #WorldEarthDay we remember those who lost their lives protecting our home.

So here is my favourite family portrait of the Rugendo Mountain Gorilla Family. It almost looks like the typical awkward human family portrait. Mum, dad and the two kids... One is shy and doesn't want their photo taken and the other child is showing off! I will be posting lots more images of this very relaxed gorilla family in the near future because they have a special story that will break your heart. Here are their names: Silverback: Bukima (26 years) Adult Female: Bagambe (10 years) Small Juvenile Male: Bwambale (2 years) Large Juvenile Male: Mayani (4 years)

So I decided to make a mini-documentary during this trip about conservation and development challenges around the Virunga area 🌳🍃🐾 ... ... As we can see from my expression my video settings still baffle me a little 😂😝😒 but luckily the amazing landscape makes up for my poor filming skills 😂 ... ...

The Nyiragongo stratovolcano situated in the Virunga Mountains glows a clear night in Congo DR. The Virunga mountain range is home to the critically endangered mountain gorilla, listed on the IUCN Red List of Endangered Species due to poaching, habitat loss, disease and war. I took this photograph while taking part in a mountain gorilla sensus project carried out by WWF and IGCP. Nyiragongo and nearby Nyamuragira are responsible for 40% of Africa's historical volcanic eruptions. In a few weeks Dr. Jane Goodall and I are coming out with a book together. With this book we want celebrate biodiversity and the remaining beauty on Earth and to inspire everyday choices for better more sustainable world. More on this soon! http://fritanke.se/bocker/perpetual-calendar-of-life/ #congo #congodr #virunga #rainforest #gorilla #mountain #volcano #endangered #iucn #wwf #igcp #mattiasklum #janegoodall #nikonambassador #protectbiodiversity @natgeo @thephotosociety @mattiasklumcollection @natgeotravel @irisalexandrov @alexandrovklumofficial
