The Central African rainforest is home to some of the world’s most spectacular wildlife, including gorillas, chimpanzees and forest elephants. Almost 80 million people depend on the forest for their livelihoods from farming, hunting and harvesting of wild fruits and vegetables, edible oils, timber and other essential products. USAID’s efforts have helped maintain the ecological integrity of the Congo Basin’s tropical rainforest, which is still largely intact while other tropical forests around the world are being severely depleted.
