This film will help you to understand the issues surrounding Virunga National Park. Drew McVey, East Africa regional manager (WWF-UK) and Raymond Lumbuenamo, WWF Democratic Republic of the Congo, Country Director answer questions about the park.
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.
But 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.
