  1. http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/1365-2664.12764/full http://www.nature.com/news/threat-to-african-forest-elephants-1.20512 ~ This August, 2016 research article published in the Journal of Applied Ecology and the explanatory article from Nature present findings from a field study of Loxodonta cyclotis, African Forest Elephant, in the Dzanga Forest of the Central African Republic. Evidence is presented that African Forest Elephants are particularly vulnerable to poaching due to slow maturation and long inter-calving intervals.
  2. Trip report to CAR and Cameroon.pdf I just returned from a very special trips to one of the most amazing places I've ever visited: Dzangha-Sangha Special Reserve in the Central African Republic. It's a long report because it has a LOT of info about the animals we saw, and some about animals we missed. It's totally different from your typical Eastern/Southern African Safari, and there is almost no overlap in the species you see. What an amazing place. I just have to note something very important for anyone considering going to Dzanga-Sangha: It's SAFE! Yes, the Central African Republic is considered a War Zone, but it's only in the North, 100s of miles from this reserve, and from the amazing Sangha Lodge. You should get there via flight from Bangui or Yaounde, or by driving the long and turtourous road from Yaounde to Libongo. But once you get there, it's more safe than the USA has been over the past few years, with all the shootings etc... Enjoy :-)
  3. Hi Everyone! I'm going with a friend (and maybe 2 more) to Dzangha Sangha National Park for 9 nights, staying at least 8 in the famous Sangha Lodge! I'm very excited of course, as the wildlife possibilities there for gorillas, forest elephants, bongons, 2 species of pangolin, several duikers, monkeys, forest and river hogs etc. are endless! But since we will most likely be arriving a day early, I wanted to inquire about booking a single night at Doli Lodge, because Sangha may not have a room for that extra night. The only problem is - the only contact info I found for Doli is info@dolilodge.com and reservations@dolilodge.com but the email to both addresses came back as "failed". Does anyone have a phone number or an updated email address to Doli Lodge? Thanks in advance!!! ~Tomes
  4. http://phys.org/news/2015-08-wildlife-veterinarians-african-partners-gorillas.html This extensive articles with many photographs explains how wildlife veterinarians are serving in the Central African Republic, treating health needs of mountain gorillas. The Mbenga work with the veterinarians with regard to blow darting medicine and removing snares. They're “indispensable to the project's success”.
  5. Guys, I haven't seen this flagged up here yet... Perhaps have a look at this report. http://focusingonwildlife.com/news/elephants-massacred-for-ivory-in-central-african-republic/ It seems that 17+ armed poachers have moved into the famous Dzanga Bai "elephant meeting place" in the rainforest (depicted in the BBC Africa series) and started slaying elephants en masse. WWF and other conservation officials had to leave the area a few weeks ago due to the political unrest. What a travesty.
