Explosions and Tourism

From the eruption in the background and the weapon of choice, you can see that being a park ranger at Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) is not like the job your local park ranger holds. These rangers must protect themselves and the park's mountain gorillas from both poachers and warring factions. And now the huge eruption of Nyamulagira volcano has opened up opportunities for the park. They've set up a camp from which tourists can get a good view of the volcano's activities! Read more about it and see a gallery of pictures at National Geographic News. Link -Thanks, Marilyn Terrell!
