Financial support for the Okapi Wildlife Reserve in the Congo

Like all other zoos that keep okapis and are taking part in the Okapi EEP, Wilhelma also supports the project "Okapi Wildlife Reserve" in the Ituri Valley in the Congo. 5,000 of the estimated 10,000 to 20,000 okapis living in the wild are here in the "Okapi Wildlife Reserve". The "Okapi Wildlife Reserve" works hard to preserve the habitat of the okapis.Wilhelma sends 5,000 US dollars (around € 3930) yearly for the project. This sum is used, amongst other things, for equipping the park rangers and for public relations projects that inform the local inhabitants about the importance of this habitat.
