Summary
The northern rainforests of the Republic of Congo are the habitat of the largest concentration of gorillas anywhere in the world. The region is also home to the IFO timber company and its employees, who rely on IFO for their income as well for the schools and medical center that IFO has established there. Environmentalists are concerned about tropical timber harvesting, but without IFO the human residents of the rainforest would be plunged into poverty. Can the rainforest be harvested without destroying the great apes' habitat? This program examines the sustainable forestry practices successfully put into place by IFO in the Congo Basin, and also addresses the problems that might occur if the logging company were simply to shut down
