Ma réaction au message de Delphine Criscenzo.

Bonjour Delphine,
Grande est donc ma joie d'échanger régulièrement avec une personne qui aime aussi la conservation de la nature comme moi. En effet ,tu avais émis les vœux de recevoir des photos et autres informations importantes concernant cette forêt ; je suis déterminé à communiquer aux autres l' importance et la situation de cette biodiversité .La fois prochaine , Je compte écrire en bref et envoyer des photos à travers ce canal
S agissant de l'exploitation illicite de la forêt ,certaines personnes exploitent d' une manière artisanale,les bois , les minerais et le braconnage.Néanmoins dans d'autres endroits les communautés locales déjà sensibilisées par une association féminine (GAMADI asbl) en collaboration avec l'institut congolais pour la conservation de la nature comprennent l'utilité de protéger. Cette action a un impact positif à ce sens que les gorilles(gorilla gorilla graueri) et les chimpanzés rapprochent les villages dans certains endroits et souvent empêchent les élèves de traverser le chemin pour aller à l' école ,toutefois le responsable de l'école arrive à notre bureau pour déposer leur plainte.
Nous prions à toute personne de bonne volonté de bien vouloir appuyer ces groupes afin que cette sensibilisation soit effective.En outre je profite de cette occasion pour informer tous les lecteurs de ce message que les recherches scientifiques ont été faites en premier lieu par un autrichien Emil Grauer depuis 1908 ,secondé par Prigogine en 1950,actuellement les autres chercheurs arrivent chez nous et réalisent leur recherches;(université de Texas , aux états unis) etc. Enfin pour mieux gérer cette biodiversité ,l'approche et la collaboration entre les services de l' état avec les communautés locales c'est à dire une partie de la forêt appartient à la communauté et d' autre à l'état.
A très bientôt.
Félix MCHINGA.

MY REACTION TO DELPHINE CRISCENZO'S MESSAGE

Hello Delphine,

So great is my joy to share regularly with a person who also loves nature conservation like me. In fact, you were the vows receive photos and other important information about the forest, and I am determined to share with others the importance and status of biodiversity Next time, I intend to write in brief and send photos through this channel.

With regard to illegal logging, some people exploit in a traditional way, with wood, minerals and poaching. However in other places local communities are already sensitized by a women's association (GAMADI association) in collaboration with the Congolese Institute for Nature Conservation who understand the value of protecting. This action has had a positive impact in the sense that the gorillas (Gorilla gorilla graueri) and chimpanzees closer to the villages in some places, often prevent students from crossing the road to go to school, but the school official came to our office to file their complaint.

We pray for all people of good will to please support these groups so that this awareness is effective. I also take this opportunity to inform all readers of this message that scientific research has been done first by an Austrian Emil Grauer since 1908, assisted by Prigogine in 1950, and other researchers now come to us and fulfill their research , (university of Texas, the United states etc.). Finally, to better manage the biodiversity approach and collaboration between the services of the state with the local communities that are a part of the forest, part belongs to the community and the other in the state.

See you soon,
Félix MCHINGA.

Proteger la Nature

Merci Felix pour avoir fourni tout ces informations sur la condition de la foret en RD du Congo.
Le braconage est un gros problem a mon avis. Les animaux sont tres souvent les victimes de notre style de vie.
Je me languis de voir des photos de la foret ou tu travailles.
Je t'enverais aussi des photos de la foret ici, dans le Nord Oust des Etats Unis. Nous n'avons pas de gorille ou de chimpanze mais beaucoup d'oiseaux et des ours.
A tres bientot Felix!
