Listen to this Baka man recount how a young girl and elderly man died after his community was attacked by Congolese wildlife guards funded by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF).
Across the Congo Basin, the Baka and Bayaka “Pygmies” are being illegally evicted from their ancestral lands in the name of conservation. As this man explains, this land theft is causing immense suffering.
The Baka and Bayaka are accused of “poaching” because they hunt to feed their families and, together with dozens of other rainforest tribes, face arrest and beatings, torture and death. Survival International is leading the fight against these abuses.

Please take action to help the Baka defend their land and lives.
