On the front lines of the battle to save the planet.

The Virunga National Park in eastern Congo is one of the most bio-diverse places in the world and home to the last of the mountain gorillas. But oil has been discovered beneath the park. A courageous young journalist, an ex-child soldier turned ranger, a carer of orphaned gorillas and a Belgian conservationist risk their lives to protect this precious land from armed militia, poachers and the dark forces struggling to control Congo's rich natural resources. [15]
