Park rangers hike down from their outpost on the Nyiragongo volcano in the Virunga National Park, where environmentalists are opposing oil drilling, in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
The city of Goma lies at the foot of Mount Nyiragongo, an active volcano situated around 20km from the city, as seen in the evening of November 1, 2013 in the east of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Mount Nyiragongo last erupted in 2002, destroying around 15% of the city, leaving some 120,000 people homeless.

Photojournalism Daily: Nov. 19, 2014

Today’s daily Photojournalism Links collection highlights Uriel Sinai's work from Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo. One of the most pristine lands in Africa, it's where environmentalists are fighting against oil companies that believe there are untapped reserves under the country's Lake Edward. Rangers aim to shield endangered wildlife from poachers, but it's nature that may need saving as some fear any found oil could lead to a redrawing of Virunga's boundaries — its protectors — to allow for drilling. The story, which pits the bounty from oil against the beauty of the earth, is the latest to spotlight a region long made to suffer for its abundance of natural riches.

Its reopening for public access after a cessation of hostilities against the M23 rebels will allow visitors to stare down into the world's largest lava lake, which is still active from an eruption in 2002 that wiped out at least 15% of the city.
