Nancy, recently elected president of FOTL, will describe her three-week
expedition to Democratic Republic of Congo and the Republic of Congo last
September. World traveler and Orange Coast College retiree, Nancy Timmons, will present
“Heart of Africa - Bonobos and Lowland Gorillas” at this year’s inaugural
program for OCC Friends of the Library. “I visited two research camps that were studying the lowland gorilla and a
sanctuary for bonobos,” which is an endangered great ape species found
exclusively in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Nancy said. “The camps are not
on the tourist circuit and only receive about 200 visitors a year. They are in
very remote locations and require plane flights, driving, boating, canoeing and
hiking in forest and swamp to get to them.” Her exploits have taken
Nancy to more than 37 countries, including nine in Africa. She visited the Congo
with three friends, including one who lives in Africa for most of the year.
