Total Systems Failure. Exposing the global secrecy destroying forests in the Democratic Republic of Congo

Home to a kaleidoscopic rainforest of over 600 tree species and 10,000 animal species, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is one of our planet’s most important biodiversity hotspots. Its forest provides vital shelter, food, fresh water and a livelihood for tens of millions of people every day, as well as housing endan- gered forest elephants, chimpanzees and bonobos. Making up two-thirds of the Congo Basin rainforest, it plays a critical part in regulating our global climate.
