WWF ~ Emmanuel De Merode: A Story of Conflict Renewal & Hope

Emmanuel De Merode, Director for Virunga National Park, gives an account of the struggle to save one of the world’s great national parks with its population of mountain gorillas, renders accessible to an audience one of the darkest conflicts in recent history, the bloody civil war in the Democratic Republic of Congo. It is not just a story of bleak and bloody facts: ultimately it is a story of determination and courage and how a small unit of Congolese park rangers, community workers and local environmental activists brought about a miracle in African wildlife conservation.

This talk is part of the TEDxWWF series.
