Protecting a Refuge for Great Apes
By adding the Goualougo Triangle to the national park system, the Republic of Congo has ensured this pristine landscape will remain untouched. As a result, zoo researchers will continue to make groundbreaking discoveries about wild chimpanzees and gorillas for decades to come.

Lincoln Park Zoo is helping to conserve the apes and gorillas of the living in the pristine forest of the Republic of Congo’s Goualougo Triangle.
