John Kahekwa, the founder of the POPOF, has rich experience, extensive knowledge and understanding about the gorillas in the Kahuzi-Biega National Park through the long-term close relationship with them. As being a pioneer of the gorilla identification work in the KBNP, he also identified over 155 individuals. This in fact is an invaluable asset for scientific researches.
