Why is poaching so bad in the DRC?



  1. 0 Votes

    Environmental damage in the Democratic Republic of Congo is out of control. The population has caused forests to shrink, deserts to grow, and humans there are increasingly desperate for food. As the ecosystem is detsroyed, its ability to produce food becomes limited. Thousands of wild animals are hunted each year, both by commercial poachers and subsistence hunters. In the DRC, its not that more animals are poached, but instead the fact that many of Africa’s remaining primate species live only there. These animals are the ones we hear most about on the news because of their close relation to humans.
