Behaviors like aggression are more easily interpretable than boredom. However, it is possible that gorillas and other animals get bored just like we do! In these circumstances you may see an increase in play by juveniles and adults to pass the time.

Senkwekwe, gorilla orphanage in Virunga's headquarters in Rumangabo, is the only place in the world where mountain gorillas live in captivity. The centre was created in 2007 after the massacre of one of the families, Senkwekwe. Seven gorillas were brutally murdered that year in the Virunga; the rangers saved two baby females – Ndakasi and Ndeze, too young to survive in the jungle. And this is Ndakasi.

Virunga National Park in the Democratic Of Congo.⁠ I went to visit a local village. This girl loved following me around the village and striking a pose. ⁠ ⁠ Recently 12 park rangers from Virunga Park and 4 civilians were killed by rebels. The Rangers have one of the most dangerous jobs as the park is constantly under siege from numerous rebels groups and over the years hundreds of rangers have lost their lives.⁠ ⁠ These men are brave, dedicated, and humble. They are protecting wildlife and the local community. Virunga is home to the rare mountain gorillas and many other rare species. ⁠ ⁠ If you cant visit here is a link to donate https://virunga.org/donate⁠ ⁠ ⁠More than 31,000 species are threatened with extinction⁠ That is 27% of all assessed species.⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #virunga #brave #mountaingorillas #endandered #rebels #virunga #virunganationalpark #heroes #dangerousjob.⁠ #village

Happy #BiodiversityDay! What particular biodiversity fact would you like to share? Here’s one I’d like to highlight: last year, I went trekking in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, home to nearly half of the mountain gorillas remaining in the world. Did you know there are actually 2 species (eastern and western) and 4 subspecies of gorillas in Africa? All are endangered, but during my stay, our guide was ecstatic: the Uganda Wildlife Authority had just released their latest census since 2011, which showed an increase from 400 to 459 individuals in the park, bringing the total count on the continent to 1069! For today’s occasion I chose this picture because of the dreamy look in that blackback’s eyes. He was displaying a full range of emotions, then he started contemplating the sky. With such a human expression on his face, I wondered if he was thinking of his future, picturing himself as the next silverback of the family, humbly praying the Gods for his wish to come true... while I was thinking of our common future, one where we’d pursue our crucial efforts to preserve Africa’s unique giants.

American actor turned environmentalist Leonardo DiCaprio has showed his support for a gorilla conservation park in the Democratic Republic of Congo. In light of the covid-19 pandemic, gorillas are facing further challenges. Scientists worry that the health crisis poses an “existential threat” towards the survival of the species. Virunga National Park is the oldest nature reserve in Africa and a UNESCO World Heritage site. It is one of the most biologically diverse areas in the world and home to the endangered mountain gorilla. In total, the park provides a habitat for several hundred species of birds, reptiles and mammals. Today, there are fewer than 1,200 mountain gorillas left in the world, so the charity encourages the public to adopt a gorilla for £3 a month to help save them from the threat of extinction. . #conservation #conservationist #environment #environmentalist #leonardodicaprio #dicaprio #gorilla #conservationpark #gorillapark #congo #donation #wildlife #wildanimal #wildanimals #virunganationalpark #africa #unesco #endangeredspecies #endangeredanimals #mountaingorillas #mountaingorilla

"Il parco nazionale di Virunga è una delle aree più ricche di biodiversità sul Pianeta, che ospita il gorilla di montagna, una specie in pericolo di estinzione". Le parole dell'attore e ambientalista Leonardo DiCaprio che ha deciso di contribuire con 2 milioni di dollari alla salvaguardia del parco nazionale di Virunga in Congo - il più antico del continente africano e dichiarato patrimonio dell’umanità dall’Unesco - minacciato dai terroristi, dal coronavirus e dal bracconaggio. Proprio qui infatti il 24 aprile si è verificato un attentato dove 12 ranger hanno perso la vita. Il fondo è stato istituito dalla sua organizzazione ambientalista – la Earth Alliance – insieme all’Emerson collective, alla Global wildlife conservation e all’Unione europea.

Just like humans, every gorilla has a different personality! Generally, young gorillas are energetic and playful, but as they mature, they usually calm down and spend less time playing. However, you may still see adults engaging in play! Overall, gorillas are actually quite shy and greatly fear new things. This is one reason researchers must habituate gorillas, or get them used to the presence of humans.

The world’s largest living primates are under critical threat There are only about a thousand mountain gorillas (Gorilla beringei beringei) remaining on Earth, and about half live in the forests of the Virunga mountains in central Africa. It is listed as critically endangered by the IUCN. It is one of the most recognisable animals in the world and one of the most endangered, but a new census reveals the surviving mountain gorilla population has now risen to 1,004 (as on June 1, 2018).. These gorillas live on the green, volcanic slopes of Rwanda, Uganda, and the Democratic Republic of Congo—areas that have seen much human violence from which the gorillas have not escaped unscathed. The trekking safari to see these wonderful animals in the wild was a lifetime experience. In this video the infants can be seen playing around our group. A maximum only of 8 persons are allowed in a group in a day to see a family and you are allowed to spend just one hour with them. #mountaingorillas #gorillas #volcanoesnationalpark #rwanda #frica #wildafrica #nikon #nikonasiaofficial #nikonindia #nikonindiaofficial #iamnikon #iamnikonofficial #bbcwild #natgeowild

Wildlife rangers getting a morning briefing before going to their missions around the Volcanoes National Park, Rwanda. The park borders Democratic Republic of Congo and Uganda, and has been a tricky place to live for the mountain gorillas. This is where Diane Fossey carried out her research, and it became a battlefield during the Rwandan civil war. Now the number of gorillas has been increasing, thanks to successful conservation efforts.

My first time outside North America was in 2014 when my mom and I traveled to Uganda. I had always been fascinated by the “Pearl of Africa” and had wanted to travel there for as long as I can remember. We stayed with a local friend’s family for part of the trip but then also spent time exploring different parts of the country. The culture shock was more than I could have ever predicted or imagined, and I loved it. Ever since then, I have been obsessed with traveling to new places, meeting new people, and experiencing cultures and ways of life far different than my own. I want to fully immerse myself in every place I visit. Of course I occasionally go see tourist attractions, but I would much rather take the road less traveled. Here are a few pictures from our journey to the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest at the southwest corner of Uganda. 🇺🇬🦍🌿 Would you like to travel to East Africa someday?
