FFI is saddened to hear about the death of another ranger in DRC

Fauna & Flora International (FFI) is saddened to hear today that another ranger has been killed by the illegal Rwandan militia (FDLR), in the central sector of Virunga National Park near the same location as last week.

FDLR are known to occupy this region. It is thought that these attacks are retaliation for renewed joint efforts by the Congolese Institute for the Conservation of Nature (ICCN) and the Congolese army to move the FDLR from this area.

FFI would like to send our condolences to the families and colleagues of the rangers and soldiers affected.
