Mai Mai rebels butcher a hippopotamus for meat and ivory along the shores of Lake Edward in the Democratic Republic of the Congo's Virunga National Park.

Congo Rangers, a blog dedicated to rangers who operate in the park, alerted the world to the massacre last month, just one example of how blogs are bringing developments in wildlife conservation directly to readers.
