As a specialist in the primate field, Johannes gives us a detailed insight into his extensive research and work to help the Gorillas and other primate species.
The battles much like all within the conservation landscape are very real, and when you bring human conflict in some of the war-torn countries where you find some of these species the complexities of the battles become more extensive.
Population expansion, and people living on the boarders of the National parks on the breadline leave little sympathy for the animals that are within and everyone understandably is fighting for survival.
With the pandemic's effect on tourism further compounding the issues, it is a tough world for everyone right now. But there is hope with people, like Johannes, fighting to save these beautiful creatures.
This is definitely a place to visit when it is safe to do so.
Inspiring positivity together.
...Together we make Tofauti.
