Gorilla survival

In this world of what sometimes seems unrelenting bad news, it was with great delight that I read that mountain gorillas in their protected national park in Uganda have been making a comeback in the last ten years.

There are still only 720 known mountain gorillas in the world today, and in parts of Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, war and hunting by humans continue to threaten their very survival.

But it’s encouraging to find that sometimes we really can do something.  And we have.
