The rainforests of DRC contain many rare and endemic wildlife species, such common chimpanzee and bonobo, forest elephant, mountain gorilla, okapi and white rhino.
Five of DRC's game parks are UNESCO World Heritage Sites, listed as critically endangered due to the fighting and warfare that threatens park rangers and animals in the parks. These include Garumba, Kahuzi-Biega, Salonga and Virunga National Parks and the Okapi Wildlife Reserve.
The bushmeat industry poses a major threat to DRC wildlife, and is indiscriminate – any and every animal may be targeted, and caught by snare or shooting with automatic rifles intended for warfare rather than hunting.
Animals in DRC
Animals in DRC range from endemic species to rare and critically endangered species that can only be found in these areas.
Aside from the rare species to be found in the rainforests, there are also a number of species including buffalo, civet, sable, cheetah, leopard, lion, antelope, 13 species of monkey, giraffe, rhino, duiker, forest pigs, Golden jackal, African wild cat, serval, manatee, hippo, lechwe and many other species.
