Synopsis: In the forested depths of eastern Congo lies Virunga National Park, one of the most bio-diverse places in the world and home to the last of the mountain gorillas. In this wild, but enchanted environment, a small and embattled team of park rangers - including an ex-child soldier turned ranger, a carer of orphan gorillas and a Belgian conservationist - protect this UNESCO world heritage site from armed militia, poachers and the dark forces struggling to control Congo's rich natural resources. When the newly formed M23 rebel group declares war in May 2012, a new conflict threatens the lives and stability of everyone and everything they've worked so hard to protect.

So you need to know their psychology

to care for them.

You cannot force them to do something

because if they

decide to be stubborn,

you will have difficulties.


She wants everything for herself.

That is the reason

we use Pringles

to deal with them.


When you give them

something they like,

they realize that you're their friend.

We do not give it to them as food...

but rather as

a tactic to handle them.

And then,

you will always have good results.

This is the only

region in the world

where you can

still find mountain gorillas.

There are only about 800

left in the whole world.

Now if we lose them,

we will have lost

something very important for humanity.

It is thanks to the animals,

especially these gorillas,

that our forest

continues to be protected.

Tourism brings in money

to help us sustain

the conservation of nature.

There are many projects

being implemented around the park

because of our gorillas.

Virunga National Park is really important

because it contributes to

the development of our country.



People are really optimistic that

the park will make things better.

We always feel proud

to stay in this forest

and do this work.

You think there are 60,000 people here?

I think there are more and more

because people keep arriving.

Why do people keep coming?

It's because of the M23 rebels.

How do you feel about what has been

happening to you over the last few months?

When I look at my children,

I keep asking myself,

"My God, how will they grow up

under such conditions?"

I'm always worried about that.

SOCO, in collaboration with ICCN,

proceed to explore for oil

under Lake Edward.

Welcome to SOCO

We the people love you so much

Because you bring us development
