Climate change threatens Congo’s great apes

Researchers fear global warming could ruin the Goualougo Triangle – home to rare gorillas and chimpanzees.

The Goualougo Triangle in the Republic of the Congo is a unique safe haven for endangered gorillas and chimpanzees.

It is located a two-day road trip away from the capital of Brazzaville.

Some researchers fear climate change might spoil the unspoiled 260-square-kilometre region – the most pristine environment on Earth for endangered great apes.

Al Jazeera’s John Hendren reports from the Goualougo Triangle.
