(essais montages photo Okapi - aléatoire)

L’okapi (Okapia johnstoni), aussi connu sous le nom de Mondonga, est une espèce de mammifères ruminants de la même famille que la girafe, venant des forêts équatoriales de l'Afrique centrale. Bien que connu par les Pygmées, il est « découvert » en 1901 par Sir Harry Johnston à qui il doit son nom. C’est l'un des derniers grands mammifères à être observé scientifiquement sur la planète.

Cet animal dont l’allure rappelle à la fois celle du zèbre et de la girafe vit exclusivement dans une petite région au nord-est de la République démocratique du Congo, la forêt tropicale de l’Ituri, où une réserve lui est spécialement dédiée. Son nom vernaculaire en lingala est mondonga.

Cet animal ne vit pas exclusivement en RD Congo. Il a été aussi observé dans les forêts du sud-est du Gabon, à la frontière avec le Congo-Brazzaville. Il a entre autres été vu par des chasseurs français en 1983 sur la piste reliant Boumango à Mbinda

Carine Asha at Kiziba Camp, Kibuye, Rwanda

"Concept: Too often refugees are reduced to numbers and statistics – victims of circumstance, a description which fails to acknowledge the multifaceted nature of their experiences.

AHA presents the more complex reality of life as a refugee, through a series of portraits and inspiring stories from refugees at Kiziba Camp, Rwanda, about survival, strength, empowerment and dignity. These inspiring persons are our heroes. The world needs more of them."
