OLogy: Welcome to the Dzanga-Sangha

Come explore three different rain forest habitats.

“m-BEE-bar-ah-moh!”

That’s how we say hello in Sango, the national language of the Central African Republic. I am a BaAka (ba-AH-kah), one of the indigenous groups that have lived in the lush Dzanga-Sangha (”sanga-sanga”) rain forest for thousands of years. “Dzanga” means“village of the elephants.” Like our ancestors, we rely on the forest for our daily needs, from food to medicine to building materials.

Come explore three different habitats of the rain forest. You’ll see how people, animals, and plants are all connected and how they all depend on each other to thrive in their rain forest home.
