Okapi Conservation Project: On the Front Line of Conservation in DR Congo

DESCRIPTION

The Okapi Conservation Project (OCP) is an organization in the DRC working to protect one of the planet’s most unique species, the okapi.

GLP Films offers an intimate look into the success and struggles of the Okapi Conservation Project as they work with local communities to meet the needs of local farmers and families while protecting the okapi’s natural habitat. Environmental destruction, civil unrest, and poaching threaten these remarkable forest dwellers that are unique to the DR Congo. The combined efforts of locals working towards sustainably and environmental eco-enthusiasts at the OCP ensure the okapi population thrive safely.
