In a war-torn region surrounding a World Heritage site in the Congo, a new framework is proposed managing habitat. A prototype is developed for an agricultural module made of bamboo, sized according to annual growth rates and market value, to be deployed in existing and future refugee camps in the region. Future camps are located so that upon abandonment, overgrowth will re-create the depleted habitat of the endangered mountain gorilla, protecting and eventually fueling the lucrative eco-tourism industry through a recreation of habitat.
