dc.description.abstractA visit to Mt. Mikeno in 1921 changed Carl Akeley's perception of the collection of animal specimens during his tenure at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. Thanks in part to Akeley’s work, King Albert I of Belgium set aside land for the first national park in Africa in 1925. That park remains intact today as the Virunga National Park.
