For the past three decades, Rosmarie Ruf has dedicated her life to protecting the endangered okapi endemic to the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Given the country’s instability and share of challenges, some would say it is no place for a woman. But after the passing of her husband, Rosmarie stepped into the role of Director of the Okapi Conservation Project and has quietly become the Jane Goodall of okapi conservation. Although she says the okapi are the ones that saved her, Rosmarie just might be the unsung hero to save these ‘ghosts of the forest.’
