Happy New Year!
The Gola Rainforest team were treated to a special present this Christmas when they collected up all the camera traps and found they had recorded loads of footage of pygmy hippos.
The videos are helping us unlock some of the secrets about what these secretive creatures get up to under the cover of the forest. We are learning more and more about their feeding habits and preferred areas of the forest.
The video below was particularly surprising as we don’t often see the hippos active in the middle of the day. We are learning new things every time we download new videos. I can’t wait to see what we find in 2019.
We spend 90% of net income on conservation, public education and advocacy
