Historic of the sector.
All the East of the CAR is the third party of this immense triangle of the south Sudan and the north of the RDC where there was the big seasonal migrations of the big ivory carriers elephants. It is the place of predilection of an abundant and rich vegetation. The rainseason, walnuts of karité and mangoes created the movements of these herds.
This rich and hospitable province with enormous inhabited zones was kingdom of the wild animals. The traditional hunt is to follow tracks and to the call.
In 1979 the first incursions of Sudanese poachers decimate during 20 years the population of elephants whose survival is obliged to their intelligence, their adaptation, their vigilance, their rarity and the biotope.
