Virunga is Africa’s oldest and most biodiverse national park and has been on the World Heritage in Danger list since 1994. It is constantly under threat from the explorations of oil and gas companies, most recently UK-based energy company SOCO.
The goal for WWF international was simple, stop SOCO exploring Virunga. Our campaign simplified the story, raised awareness of the issues, and ultimately gained signatures for an online petition. It was WWF international's largest cross-network campaign gaining over 700,000 signatures.
