Empty Hands, Open Arms: The Race to Save Bonobos in the Congo and Make Conservation go Viral
B<Ee>chard relates the efforts of a small conservation group to save the bonobo great apes from extinction. Working in the Congo, the relatively small Bonobo Conservation Initiative (BCI)has been more effective in its work than many larger organizations. In what is a documentary with a certain amount of travelogue added, the author describes the BCIEs alternative approaches to conservation. That system, unlike many others, does not mandate a system on the Congolese communities with which it works. Instead, the BCI employs what is more properly referred to as an exchange program in which it helps communities by working with them on problems such as lack of employment or education that result in hunting bonobos.
