Ituri Rainforest


So, where is Ituri rainforest?

It is located in eastern parts of Democratic Republic of Congo (former Zaire), where it covers about 63,000 square kilometres of land in hot and humid tropical rainforest biome.





These rainforests contain the famous Okapi Wildlife Reserve - which, as the name says, protects okapis; and also other animals such as elephants and primates - from deforestation, hunting and other threats
