Save the Congo

The possibility that "one of the last real paradises on earth" might go by the wayside motivated Fay to make the Megatransect.


ArcUser October-December 2001
 
Save the Congo

While inventorying the plant and animal life between Bomassa, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Gabon's Atlantic coast, he discovered an ecosystem that has remained virtually untouched by humans. Located in an area called Langoué in the Gabonese Republic, the logging rights to the land are currently owned by logging companies. Fay hopes to purchase back the logging rights for 600,000 acres at the core of this wilderness area and create the Langoué National Park. This effort will require raising 3.6 million dollars.
