DR Congo rainforest at risk as government plans to sell rights to look for oil

There are approximately 10, 000 species of tropical plants in the Congo Basin and 30 percent are unique to the region. Endangered wildlife, including forest elephants, chimpanzees, bonobos, and lowland and mountain gorillas inhabit the lush forests. 400 other species of mammals, 1,000 species of birds and 700 species of fish can also be found here.

          So we are ready to give up the rainforest and everything that comes with it in search of oil while we have so many options? This is disturbing
