The WWF Environmental Program (PEVi) has been working in and around the park for over 20 years. WWF works with the Congolese Wildlife Authority (ICCN) and local communities on:
Preventing deforestation: helping local farmers plant trees, development of energy-efficient stoves that reduce deforestation in the park - currently the main source of fuel wood.

WWF works closely with the Congolese Wildlife Authority & the communities living next to Virunga to develop sustainable ways of managing & using natural resources to prevent the destruction of the park.
