Box art for Virunga

In the Democratic Republic of the Congo lies Virunga, Africa’s oldest national park, a UNESCO world heritage site, and the last natural habitat for the critically endangered mountain gorilla. Virunga is also however hostly contested ground between rival insurgencies seeking to topple the government and profit from the land. The only thing standing between the gorillas and the forces closing in on them is a handful of passionate park rangers and journalists fighting to secure the park’s borders.
