"The park has become a battlefield," said John Hart, senior scientist at the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), told Reuters from eastern Congo.
"There are a range of armed militia and renegade groups retreating or being pushed into the park." A report in June by New York-based WCS and Congo's Nature Conservation Institute (ICCN) showed Virunga's population of elephants and other large animals -- such as buffalo and Ugandan kob, a type of antelope -- was recovering after a decade in which two wars swept across the park. But just two months after the report was published, a group of 200 Mai Mai fighters set up camp in the centre of Virunga. In the last month, this one group has killed 17 elephants for food and to sell the meat and ivory, with evidence pointing to the collusion of elements in Congo's national army, Hart said. "There are almost daily reports of elephants being killed in the past month," said Hart, estimating there could be fewer than 300 left. "It is going to take military intervention to secure the park," said Hart. "Any time the militia leave the park, they leave a trail of murder and looting." Some 15 people, including eight civilians, were killed this week in a joint operation between the Congolese army and United Nations forces to clear some Rwandan militia from the park. While the frontiers of Virunga have not changed since its foundation in 1925, the area available to wildlife is being gradually eroded by human encroachment. Removing these populations will be very difficult, Hart said. "I remain hopeful that enough wildlife will survive in pockets to recover the populations once the park is secured," he said.

Dr. John Hart will give a presentation entitled From Bonobo to Okapi: Development of a Conservation agenda in the Democratic Republic of Congo on Wednesday, Jan. 23 from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. in the Health Sciences Centre, Room 1A05. Hart is the scientific director of the Tshuapa-Lomami-Lualaba Project in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, a country in which he has spent most of the past 30 years working as a donservation biologist. He has played a central role in promoting conservation of the DRC's extraordinary biological diversity during periods of intense political strife.His work led to the establishment of the Okapi Reserve, which is a World Heritage Site, re-discovery of fragmented populations of forest gorillas on the Itombwe Plateau, and more recently, increased awareness of vulnerable populations of pygmy chimpanzees (bonobos). In this seminar, Hart will look back over his decades of conservation work, much of which was carried out while he was a senior research scientist for the Wildlife Conservation Society, that took place over the collapse of the national administration of Zaire and extending to the recent years of civil war.
