In the heart of the Congo Basin, the Gabonese forests are one of the world's unique ecosystems: they are home to one of the biggest natural reserves of great apes. Despite regulations that protect this biodiversity, the population has decreased by half in 20 years. The main causes of this disappearance are illegal hunting for the meat trade and the destruction of habitats.

In order to fight against the disappearance of this exceptional biodiversity, the Jane Goodall Institute has developed environmental education programmes aimed especially at school children to raise their awareness of the issues concerning their environment.
