Gorillas of the Kongo: Chain saws to the rescue

Kongo: Ochrana goril řetězovou pilou

The rain forests in northern Congo, where tropical timber is cut, are also home to the western lowland gorilla. The documentary by Thomas Weidenbach shows that the preservation of gorillas and forestry are compatible. He spent a week filming in the forests of northern Congo. Unique footage of gorillas originated along with shots of the work of woodcutters.
