Rep of Congo | Study pinpoints advent of poaching in Nouabalé–Ndoki NP

Elephant poachers are using logging roads to infiltrate some of the last remaining pristine forests in Central Africa, according to a study published in July.


The study’s authors also revealed that logging, even done selectively under Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) guidelines, alters wildlife habitat and behavior. The research, published in the journal Frontiers in Forests and Global Change, examined how these changes altered the habitat for western lowland gorillas (Gorilla gorilla gorilla) and central chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes troglodytes).
