As director of the TL2 Project I represent an outstanding team of Congolese field biologists. My husband and I set out in 2007 to explore an unknown forest. We found bonobos, a new species of monkey, forest elephant, okapi, Congo peacock... Our mission now, with our TL2 staff, is to build effective conservation from village-base to national administration for TL2 and other critical conservation areas of DR Congo. Read more.

This allowed us to do more for the Lomami National Park and its buffer zone than in any previous year.
And we are off to a strong start in 2016. Your support and interest are for us the greatest motivation possible. Our responsiblity is to keep you informed. Through this blogsite and through our reports and photos. Don't hesitate to ask us specific questions.
Our direct thanks go to (in order funding was received in 2015) Arcus Foundation, FCF (anonymous), Wildcat Foundation, Rainforest Trust, US Fish and Wildlife Service, Edith McBean and many very generous donors through this blogsite.
Many thanks from all of us in TL2.
The three river basins of the Tshuapa, Lomami and Lualaba Rivers (TL2), Congo’s forest enigma, ascend through its geographic heart. We have answered our first question "Is Congo's own great ape, the bonobo, found in TL2?" Yes it is? And so is Congo's endemic rainforest giraffe, the okapi and the rare Congo peacock. But, now the challenge is to bring real protection to the forests before the bonobo and all other large animals are hunted out.
We make a great team:
We’ve been in the field – Congo’s TL2 – since May 2007.
