Our events take place at an interesting site in Zurich or at our office in Zollikon should a more personal venue be required. In any case we will celebrate our love for Africa in casual atmosphere and inform about our conservaton projects in Africa.
Virunga National Park is Africa's oldest park and certainly one of the most diverse protected areas in Africa. The rangers of Virunga National Park, together with Emmanuel de Mérode, fight for this unique park and most particularly the gorillas. Please meet Marlene Zähner who has introduced blood hounds to Virunga National Park and who knows the park and the rangers of Virunga personally from many visits.
