WATCH! WWF Animation to Protect Virunga National Park!

Pack your bags, gang - because we're heading to Africa to check out Virunga National Park... 

Located in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Virunga National Park is Africa's oldest national park. And with its stunning savannah plains, lakes and forests, this incredible site is home to more species of mammals, birds and reptiles than any other park in Africa!

Unfortunately, Virunga National Park is at risk of being exploited for its oil, putting the wildlife and natural landscape under threat. 

But the good news is that action is being taken. As part of their Draw The Line campaign, which aims to keep oil exploration out of Virunga National Park, the WWF have released an animated film that brings the beauty of this precious place to life....
