In this wild, but enchanted environment, a small and embattled team of park rangers - including an ex-child soldier turned ranger, a carer of orphan gorillas and a Belgian conservationist - protect this UNESCO world heritage site from armed militia, poachers and the dark forces struggling to control Congo's rich natural resources. When the newly formed M23 rebel group declares war in May 2012, a new conflict threatens the lives and stability of everyone and everything they've worked so hard to protect.<br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.virungamovie.com">www.virungamovie.com</a><br /> <br /> Director: Orlando von Einsiedel<br /> Producers: Joanna Natasegara &amp; Orlando von Einsiedel<br /> Editor: Masahiro Hirakubo<br /> Cinematography: Franklin Dow &amp; Orlando von Einsiedel<br /> Composer: Patrick Jonsson<br /> Executive Producers: Jon Drever, Maxyne Franklin, Howard G.

Conservation, he declares, can become a source of income. Costa Rica's national business model proves that, generating greater income as its natural habitat expands, and the nation is on track to generate 95 percent of its power needs from renewable resources by 2015.<br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.transformconflict.blogspot.com/">http://www.transformconflict.blogspot.com/</a><br/> <a href="http://www.twitter.com/alvarcidane">http://www.twitter.com/alvarcidane</a> Kony's Ivory: LRA Poaching in Garamba National Park tag:www.globalethicsnetwork.org,2013-06-06:6428686:Video:23589 2013-06-06T16:20:17.623Z Carnegie Council https://www.globalethicsnetwork.org/profile/1asjx2mhlves3 <a href="https://www.globalethicsnetwork.org/video/kony-s-ivory-lra-poaching-in-garamba-national-park"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="180" src="https://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/332080604?profile=original&amp;width=240&amp;height=180" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>The Enough Project investigates in Congo's Garamba National Park, where Joseph Kony's Lord's Resistance Army is poaching elephants to sustain their operations.
