Over-exploitation of mahogany trees in the border of the Republic of South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of the Congo is causing a climatic change and massive migration of wildlife (animals) and other species.

Individuals and some companies have been involved in illegal logging for their personal benefits.

The large-scale over-exploitation of the ecosystem and absence of its sustainable plans have had adverse consequences to the life of the people living in the border regions.

Most of these activities are illegally exhibited by local and the foreign dealers.
