Congo Basin Logging Roads

After the Amazon, the Congo Basin considered the world’s second lung. It’s forests help regulate our climate and play home to an abundance of biodiversity and rich cultures. Over time, the forests of the Congo Basin have been opened up by the logging industry seeking valuable hardwoods. Poor management has lead to increasing human migration into pristine forests areas threatening unique biodiversity and indigenous hunter gatherer cultures such as baka pygmies who depend on the forest for their livelihoods.
