The Bomassa headquarters of Nouabale-Ndoki National Park, bordered by the Sangha river on one side and forest on the other, was built in the early 1990s. The National Park now employs around 150 local people, who work to safeguard the protected area against the wave of illegal poaching that has swept across most of central Africa in recent years, putting much of the region’s biodiversity at risk of extinction. Several species of monkeys and hornbills can be seen in the trees above Bomassa, and because they are safe from being poached by humans here, these animals are very relaxed. This collection of images were taken within the park’s headquarters where WCS staff and researchers live, or pass through when returning from missions in the field, and on the Sangha River en route to Bomassa. The park’s anti-poaching units also prepare for patrols in Bomassa, and are debriefed here after returning from their 15 day patrols in the park and surrounds.
