My Expedition to Congo Basin|
Hey Everyone. At the Beginning of this year, I went to a research expedition to the Dja Fauna Reserve, Cameron in the Congo Basin System with UCLA. I will try to update the post if anyone want to know more about doing wildlife research in Africa.
The Congo Basin in central Africa is the second largest tropical rainforest and biodiversity hotspot in the world following the Amazon in South America. "Congo" is a traditional name for the equatorial Middle Africa that lies between the Gulf of Guinea and the African Great LakesThe basin ends where the river empties its load in the Gulf of Guinea on the Atlantic Ocean. Currently, Congo Basin covered 10 African countries:
Central African Republic
Democratic Republic of the Congo
Republic of the Congo
The climate is equatorial tropical, with two rainy seasons including very high rainfalls, and high temperature year round. The basin is home to some of the well known African animals such as gorillas such as cross river gorilla and western lowland gorilla, chimpanzees, three species of pangolins, forest elephants, and bonobos. According to the local legend and cryptozoology, Congo Basin is also the home of the last remaining non-avian dinosaurs alive today: Mokele-mbembe. The Congo Basin is also the home of the pygmy tribe, the Baka people who are remained to be hurter-and-gatherers.
