Lobeke National Park is part of the Tri-national cross-border landscape of the Sangha (TNS) located between Cameroon, the Central African Republic and Congo. It is a site of conservation by excellence and home to two species of great apes endangered according to the IUCN: the Gorilla (Gorilla) and chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes).

This Park is surrounded by the forest management unit (FMU) in which there is the practice of logging and sport hunting. Nearly 22000 people live in the outskirts and depend only on park resources for their livelihood. This human presence increases the pressure on the animal species and gorillas. These gorillas contribute to local development in triple economic, social and environmental terms.
