The Congo Rainforest, also known as the Central African Rainforest, is one of the most biodiverse forests in the world. It covers central and southwestern Africa, with an area of about 2 million km². Congo rain forests include a wide variety of habitats, from rainforests to dry forests and wetlands.
The Congo Rainforest has a very diverse ecosystem with thousands of species of plants and animals, including rare species such as gorillas, forest elephants, lions, antelopes and many species of fish and birds. Many of the animals here are considered unique and can only be found in this area.
In particular, the Congo rain forest is also home to the Pygmy people – a special indigenous people with many unique cultural features. They live by hunting and gathering in the rain forest and lead a life associated with nature.
However, the Congo rainforest is facing many challenges and risks, including environmental destruction, urbanization and forest exploitation. Organizations and governments are working to protect the Congo rainforest and ensure sustainability for both animals and people.
