Upemba National Park is one of the oldest national parks of the Democratic Republic of Congo. It was first established in May 1939 because of its high value in biodiversity covering 13,673 km² of wilderness.
Kundelungu National Park is 8,236 km² and is located to the east of Upemba national park, to which it is connected by an ecological corridor allowing the migration of the fauna.
The Upemba & Kundelungu national park complex comprises an area of approximately 24,600km2 of spectacular wilderness in Katanga Province of Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
The implementation of various technologies is essential to the Foundation’s approach to achieving mission success and delivering tangible conservation outcomes. In order to implement and support these technologies, FPF has established its own communications and technical surveillance section known as the FPF Technical Support Unit.
We are implementing the One Health initiative in the Upemba & Kundelungu National Park complex (UKC) as part of a worldwide strategy for expanding interdisciplinary collaborations and communications in all aspects of health care for humans, animals and the environment. The synergism achieved will advance health care for the 21st century and beyond for all those who reside within the areas of the CUK.
