UN protects 'wild heart' of Central Africa
Date:7/2/2012

ongo, sitatunga, forest buffalo, and giant forest hogs.

Unlike many other protected areas, the TNS is not a relict fragmented forest, but continues to be part of a much larger intact and ecologically functional landscape. This is increasingly rare and significant at a global scale.

The new World Heritage Site is made up of a core 7,542 km2 or 2,911 square miles area consisting of Dzanga-Ndoki National Park in Central African Republic, Lobk National Park in Cameroon, and Nouabal-Ndoki National Park in Congo. An additional 17,880 km2 (6,903 square miles) buffer zone is managed for selective logging many of which have Forest Stewardship Council certification.

The buffer zone of the TNS supports a rich cultural heritage through its local communities and indigenous peoples (forest hunter-gatherers, river peoples). The integrity and richness of the TNS tropical forests are key resources for sustaining the cultures and livelihoods of these peoples.
