Home to released and wild bonobos, the new reserve is a public-private partnership (similar to a land trust) between the Province of Equateur, ABC (Lola ya Bonobo’s parent organization), and local communities.
The communities living in and around these forests now own rights to Ekolo and work in partnership with ABC/Lola ya Bonobo to protect and manage the forest and its resources to benefit both people and wildlife.
A huge Thank You to our partner and sponsor, the RainForest Trust
and all of you! For making this dream come true.
