Life, death and money of mafia in the Congo (58 pics)

Posted in Pictures   5 Nov 2009   / 13256 views

This story has shocked the whole world in 2007.
9 gorillas were killed in the eastern Congo in one week. One of them was a female gorilla in late pregnancy.
Animals were killed for no apparent reason, obviously not for being eaten.
Even though poaching is flourishing in the country, this time it had nothing to do with animal trafficking.
There are not enough rangers in the National Park, inhabited by many rare species of animals.
600 people are working there now who have not been paid for years; they don’t have enough weapons.
What can 600 people do against an 8,000 well-equipped army of local influential general? Nothing.
The basic version of gorilla killings is that, the interests of the coal mafia of the Congo have been affected whose revenues are about $ 30,000,000 per year.
This mafia is interested in cutting down tropical forests and when someone gets in the way, they “deal” with it.
There are only about 600 mountain gorillas in the world.
These are very sad pictures showing the everyday life of the Congo inhabitants.
PS. Ordinary people are shown in the first photos, they don’t kill, but bury the dead gorillas.

Gorillas form part of the bush meat diet of the Congolese. Bush meat includes any mammal or other animal with enough meat on it's bones which comes from the surrounding forests. It is also used for "muti" (medicinal purposes). mr47_04

The gorillas are actually not the target of hunting, it's one kind of metal mineral which I can't remember the name. This mineral is needed as one of the materials to produce a 'cell phones'' (Not sure which part, the body or the battery part). Anyway it is said abt 60% of this mineral found were from Columbia, in the hills where these gorillas live. It is actually ILLEGAL to do mining there but, as you see, money are important to these people. However don't just blame only them, the cell phone producers buy the minerals from black markets which all the processes are too complicated to be tracked by legal institutions. One thing we can stop this, or at least extend the time these gorillas being killed > don't use your cell phone uselessly. A lot of people even change their phone in two weeks. The more you buy (new) cell phone, the more the producer buy that mineral, hence the death og those gorillas....
