Representing the Canadian Ape Alliance in Africa, Nick January has made great progress over the past few years helping to map vast tracts of territory deep in the Congo Basin. Under the direction of renowned conservation scientists Drs. John and Terese Hart, Nick has been working with the Lukuru Wildlife Research Foundation to document and analyze a region of immense scientific importance and rich biodiversity. Lomami National Park (formerly called TL2 because of the three bordering rivers, Tshuapa, Lomami and Lualaba) encompasses one of the least travelled forest expanses in Central Africa.
