Villagers are roused by the sound of motorbikes and sight of white people as the NG Adventure team make their way through the outer reaches of the Yangambi Research Station, in Yangambi, DR Congo, on Sunday, Dec. 7, 2008. Villages are scattered throughout the 33 kilometers of Yangambi in clearings in the forest. The communities here live much as they have done for centuries, with no electricity and little access to the outside world.
