Protect Mountain Gorillas From Oil Extraction

Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo is a World Heritage Site and one of the most biologically diverse areas in the world. It offers refuge to critical populations of the less than 1,000 mountain gorillas remaining in the world.

But despite its priceless ecological importance, oil companies are fighting to enter Virunga for oil exploration and extraction. To drill in this park would not only threaten wildlife, negatively impact the ecosystem and jeopardize the mountain gorilla, but also bring further disruption to an unstable area full of human conflict.

We must protect this precious park and the critically endangered mountain gorilla from oil extraction.

Sign the petition and stand against greedy corporations attempting to drill for oil in Virunga National Park, home of the critically endangered mountain gorilla.
