Djéké Triangle incorporated into Nouabale-Ndoki National Park in Northern Congo
Collaboration between Olam Agri, Wildlife Conservation Society & Congolese government achieves major conservation milestone
The Djéké Triangle, a pristine 9,500 hectares forest area in northern Congo has been integrated into the Nouabale-Ndoki National Park, through the collaborative efforts of Olam Agri, the Congolese government and the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS).
The Nouabale-Ndoki National Park was created in 1993 and first experienced an expansion in 2012 when Olam Agri offered part of its Kabo concession (the Goualougo Triangle, with an area of more than 25,000 ha) to be integrated into the park. With the addition of the Djeke Triangle, the park now covers a total of 433,400 hectares and is home to a diverse range of species, including forest elephants, western lowland gorillas, chimpanzees, and other endangered species. The area is crucial for the survival of many indigenous communities that depend on the forest for their livelihoods.
