Forests of Gabon, Loango National Park. A source of pride for Gabon, it is one of the few places in the world where you can stand on a pristine beach and see elephants, hippos and humpback whales all at once.
Dian Fossey studied Gorillas extensively for 18 years. she fought off deforestation, poaching, and is probably the sole reason the mountain gorillas of Rwanda are not extinct today. "Gorillas in the Mist" with Sigorney Weaver is a great movie!
