Facts about Maiko National Park

Maiko National Park is found in a remote forest area in DRC. Its biodiversity is of great significance to the nation. This includes Grauer’s gorilla and the okapi. Within this area lies the Mai Mai rebels (for over 50 years now) and has played in the political conflicts going on in the country making the area difficult to access.

The monitoring and protection of the park is done by working with both the Congolese conservation authorities (ICCN – Institut Congolais pour la Conservation de la Nature) and local stakeholders, including the Simba Mai Mai, FZS (Frankfurt Zoological Society). They together endeavour to support the management and conservation of the park. Sustainable development of the communities living around the park and the reintegration of the Simba Mai Mai rebels living within the park is ensured. Both the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), through the advice centre for non-governmental organizations working in the field of development cooperation (Bengo), and Berggorilla & Regenwald Direkthilfe have supported this FZS project in Maiko.
