New bonobo reserve set aside in Congo

Good news for bonobos:

Congo has announced the establishment of a rain-forest preserve intended to shield the bonobo, one of human beings' two closest ape relations, from wildlife poachers and deforestation.
The Sankuru Nature Reserve -- at 11,803 square miles, it is larger than the state of Massachusetts -- is being created through a partnership involving American and Congolese conservation groups and government agencies.
