    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.
