Conservation is war
In the forested depths of eastern Congo lies Virunga National Park, one of the most bio-diverse places in the world and home to the last of the mountain gorillas. Here, an embattled team of park rangers that includes an ex-child soldier and a Belgian prince, risk their lives to protect this UNESCO World Heritage Site from armed rebels, poachers, and even corporations trying to wrest control of Congo’s rich natural resources.

Amidst a brutal civil war over natural resources, Congo natives are torn between saving themselves and protecting the incredible landscape they call home. Environmentalists native to the area have made it their duty to protect the wildlife in the areas consistently under attack, including the world’s last mountain gorillas. Exclusively on Netflix.
