The Virunga National Park in the DRC is under threat from oil exploration. In a campaign tagged #SOSVirunga, the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) has made a video showcasing why allowing this would be a huge mistake.
How can you help to draw the line so that Virunga can live forever? Watch the video and then add your name to the petition.
[Update June 2014: More than 765,000 people from around the world signed WWF's petition to protect the park from oil exploration, and helped achieve a great result. In June 2014 UK oil company Soco announced it would stop its operations.]
