Pilot Project for Baboon Home Range Restoration

Strong Roots has convoyed a team of experts composed of primatologists, conservationists and socioeconomists (from the Research Center in Natural Sciences of Lwiro, the Congolese Institute for Nature Conservation and Strong Roots) to collect useful data for a conservation and research project along the Ruzizi River range, the border area between Rwanda and DRC. The Ruzizi River links the Lake Kivu and the Lake Tanganyika, crossing an area rich in biodiversity, including baboons, crocodiles, hippos, aquatic life and other small monkeys.
