The shy, gentle giants and humans share the DNA together. Only found in the Virunga area mountain gorillas are very endangered, as less than 500 is left in the wild. They can’t breed in captivity.

When  I was a child, my dream was to live in the jungle with the mountain gorillas, just as Dian Fossey did and I was over the moon when I saw them for the first time!

The thing that brings a smile to my face is information that the number of the mountain gorillas is increasing. Hope the future will bring safety to these gorgeous animals.
