The Fauna & Flora Garden offers a window into the spectacular Afromontane landscape of Central Africa’s imposing Virunga Massif, celebrating the success of the charity’s International Gorilla Conservation Programme, originally established by Fauna & Flora in 1978 as the Mountain Gorilla Project, at the behest of Sir David Attenborough.
The garden maps the journey of an ecotourist on a gorilla trek, tracing a rough track through a succession of lush and changing landscapes on either side of the Protected Forest Area boundary wall, each side showcasing the familiar, unusual and spectacular plants found in the area. Along the way is a medicinal garden shaded by Eucalyptus and banana trees; a typical tourist kiosk selling local crafts; a true-to-life gorilla nest set amongst bamboo; and an entrancing waterfall and viewing rock surrounded by plants found at high altitude.The garden aims to demonstrate the critical importance of protecting nature and how this can be best achieved by putting people and collaboration at the heart of conservation efforts.
The garden has been relocated to the world-famous biomes of the Eden Project in Cornwall, to be enjoyed by around one million annual visitors for years to come.
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
