John Kahekwa and Eddy Kahekwa led members of the community into the Kahuzi-Biega National Park to visit with the gorillas.
Including local communities in the preservation of their areas is vital to the future of Conservation as a whole.
Engaged communities feel invested in, and benefit from, Conservation.
This group was very happy to meet the silverback, Bonane, and his family.
They were able to stay for an hour, and now understand how special the gorillas are and why so many visitors come from overseas to see them.
