Since the Congo was relatively unknown to most Europeans, Leopold II turned to Henry Morton Stanley, the man responsible for opening up Africa for colonization when he successfully crossed Africa from east to west. With Stanley’s help, it was possible for Belgium to colonize the central African country. Leopold II believed that a colony had to make money for the mother country.

There are three species of zebra, and they occur in Africa: plains zebra, mountain zebra and Grevy's zebra.

Way of Communicating There is a rich, fertile legacy of folklore from Africa. On this vast continent, folk tales and myths serve as a means of handing down traditions and customs from one generation to the next. The storytelling tradition has thrived for generations because of the absence of printed material. Folk tales prepare young people for life, as there are many lessons to be learned from the tales.

Big Foot Needs Big Home Les Schobert, the author of the article “Let the Zoo’s Elephants Go” spent more than thirty years taking care of elephants as a curator. After years living with wild animals, he started writing about the elements in Nation Zoo and the things that were happening to them. “Let the Zoo’s Elephants Go” was published on October 16, 2005 as an urgent call to Nation Zoo for freedom for elephants. In the article “Let the Zoo’s Elephants Go”, Schobert debated that Zoos must change the concept about keeping elephants in a small captivity and send them to a bigger place like sanctuary. Since elephants are big animals, they need to live in a lot bigger space, but the zoos only provide them small areas to live, so they can easily get harm, especially in their feet.
