Gabon, a founding member of the EPI in 2014, has the largest intact surviving forests of central Africa, and the largest surviving population of forest elephants. Gabon established a network of 13 National Parks in 2002 to protect its natural heritage. Despite this, about one third of Gabon’s elephants have been killed in the past 15 years.
