The African Wildlife Foundation is an organization concerned with the conservation of wildlife and natural resources in Africa. Its mission is to protect the beautiful natural landscape of Africa and push sustainable economic advancement during this critical time of development. Now is the time when countries such as the Democratic Republic of the Congo can transition to green practices while still achieving economic expansion. In the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the AWF is working to prevent poaching of endangered species such as the bonobo ape, establish sustainable resource management and agricultural practices, preserve the Congo Rainforest and Basin, and improve youth education on these important topics.
