Help us draw the line at oil - please add your name to our urgent campaign to protect Virunga National Park at

Join the conversation on twitter:

Heard of Virunga? It's Africa's oldest national park, and a treasured World Heritage Site. Rainforests, volcanoes, rare and beautiful wildlife - Virunga has it all. People who live and work there know it's a very special place.

We called upon director Belle Mellor, of Film Club and Th1ng, to illustrate the potential ecological crisis that may result in light of current oil exploration in Virunga National Park. Virunga is at risk of becoming Africa's newest oil field. When we heard UK oil company Soco might explore for oil inside Virunga, we had to draw the line. Some places are just too precious to exploit.

We'd love to hear your toughs about the animation and please sign up to protect Virunga.
