Gorilla conservation organizations recently conducted a survey of the Mountain gorillas in the Virunga Volcanoes conservation area, and found their number had increased by more than 25%
The video (above), filmed by Gorilla Doctor Jan Ramer, shows Mountain gorilla Kabatwa, mother of new twin boys in Hirwa gorilla group. She is famished after giving birth and indulges in a much needed meal. Twins are rare in the Mountain gorilla population and only 5 sets have been recorded in history.
Following mounting pressure from conservation organizations, the UK’s Soco International has been blocked from searching for oil in the Virunga National Park, Africa’s oldest NP and home to the endangered Mountain gorilla.
