Pygmies

The Pygmies

Forced to leave the older part of the park where they had always lived , they now live in small villages located close to the forest on the land claimed by the Bashi, they have not given up hunting and setting of snare trap small mammals , traps that are dangerous for young gorillas. They live in extended families and occasionally establish present farms . In this , they apply the same farming techniques as the bashi. However , this activity is below the level of subsistence and they supplement it by selling or bartering cannabis , wood and game meat.  To divert their interests from the park’s resources , The Park organisation hs given them employment for them , some become trackers for visiting gorillas , others are employed in the construction and repair of the trails in the park.
