MOUNTAIN GORILLA takes us to a remote range of volcanic mountains in Africa, described
by those who have been there as "one of the most beautiful places in the world", and home
to the few hundred remaining mountain gorillas.
In spending a day with a gorilla family in the mountain forest, audiences will be captivated by these
intelligent and curious animals, as they eat, sleep, play and interact with each other. Although
gorillas have been much-maligned in our popular culture, viewers will finally "meet the legend"
face to face, and learn about their uncertain future.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Mountain Gorilla (Gorilla beringei beringei) is one of two subspecies of Eastern Gorillas. There are two populations. One is only found in the Virunga volcanic mountains of Central Africa, within three national parks: Mgahinga, in south-west Uganda; Volcanoes, in north-west Rwanda; and Virunga, in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The other is found in Uganda's Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Some claim that the Bwindi population in Uganda is a third subspecies, although no formal taxonomic description has been published.
A census taken in 2003 has shown a 17% increase in population size since 1989. There are now a total of 380 gorillas in 30 social groups in the Virungas and a total of about 320 in Bwindi. However, the Mountain Gorilla continues to be considered critically endangered on the IUCN Red List of Endangered Species. It faces an extremely high risk of extinction in the wild due to habitat loss, poaching, human disease, and war. All in all there are only around 700 Mountain Gorillas left.
