At three times the size of France, Central African forests are the largest tropical forest mass after the Amazon and cover a large portion of the Congo Basin, the second largest river in the world. Such forests serve as more than just an interest for biologists: they are crucially vital to countries in this area as well as populations who live off them. The pressure is therefore quite strong.
