Virunga, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, is Africa’s oldest national park, but it is also a contested ground where insurgents seek to topple a profit-hungry government. Here, journalists and rangers take it upon themselves to tackle both challenges -- to save the mountain gorillas and their natural habitat, and to expose political corruption.

The New York Times by Jeannette Catsoulis
