New rainforest reserve protects more than 1,000 bonobos and benefits local communities

KINSHASA, DRC, May 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Bonobo Conservation Initiative (BCI) joins the government of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) in announcing the official establishment of the Kokolopori Bonobo Reserve, a community-managed protected area which harbors one of the largest known wild populations of the endangered bonobo.
