The Okapi Conservation Project (OCP), founded in 1987, operates in the Democratic Republic of Congo to protect the natural habitat of the okapi and indigenous peoples living in the Okapi Wildlife Reserve. Its programs in social development and environmental stewardship promote the viability of the region's biodiversity and survival of its threatened species, like the okapi.
OCP works with and supports the Institute in the Congo for the Conservation of Nature (ICCN), a government-sponsored organization responsible for the protection of the Reserve.
