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.
