Gorilla Warfare (2014)

Gorilla Warfare: The big oil threatening to move into Africa's oldest national park.
In the dark heart of Africa lies a place very few people have seen. ItвЂ™s called Virunga.
And itвЂ™s home to one of the last populations of mountain gorillas in the world.
Despite decades of civil war and brutal poaching the gorillas are clinging on, protected by rangers who are literally prepared to die for the cause.
Every month, a ranger gets killed by a poacher.
Now a Belgian Prince has put himself between the gorillas and harmвЂ™s way, but heвЂ™s facing a new, more dangerous threat.
Big oil is threatening to move into AfricaвЂ™s oldest national park, and theyвЂ™re much more brazen than the poachers.

British oil company Soco International has denied allegations that it paid for an official Congolese government delegation to go to a UN meeting where talks were being held on whether its exploratory work in Africa's oldest national should be allowed.
The formerly named Albert National Park, is a 7,800-square-kilometre (3,000 sq mi) National Park that stretches from the Virunga Mountains in the South, to the Rwenzori Mountains in the North, in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo, bordering Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda and Rwenzori Mountains National Park and Queen Elizabeth National Park in Uganda.
The park was established in 1925 as Africa's first national park and is a UNESCO-designated World Heritage Site since 1979.
