Maps of the Area

Map 1 shows an outline of Gabonese Republic with existing protected areas in pink. Dark blue represents proposed Langoué National Park and green shows the active logging concessions excluding those in the proposed park.

Map 2 shows permits that we hope will be voluntarily returned to the public domain (orange), those to be traded (blue or pink), and those that remain to be negotiated (red). The Ipassa Reserve, which already has protected status, appears in turquoise. Other areas that could potentially enter into negotiations appear in pea green.

Map 4 – This map, generated using the ArcGIS Spatial Analyst extension, illustrates the distance from populated places. The white polygon shows the existing national park boundaries. The black line shows the Megatransect
