Settlement of BaAka People in the Dzanga-Ndoki National Park, Central African Republic

The BaAka, natives of this area, have an unparalleled knowledge of the forest. With their participation in the conservation efforts of WWF in Dzanga-Sangha, the BaAka have played a fundamental role in the protection of this ecosystem. Among other things, they play a role in guiding tourists in the national park. Tourism is very important to Dzanga-Sangha and 50 percent of the revenues from park entry fees go towards park management, 10 percent goes to a governmental fund to develop forestry and tourism in the country, and 40 percent goes to the local community, to promote rural development projects based on the sustainable use of natural resources.
