Gorilla Census Kicks Off in Virunga Massif

Silverback Gorilla

Do you ever wonder how many mountain gorillas are left in the wild? Every five years, a census of gorillas is carried out in the Virunga Mastiff – which is a combination of Virunga National Park in DR Congo, Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park in Uganda.

The 2015/2016 mountain gorilla census is being conducted under the framework of the Greater Virunga Transboundary Collaboration (GVTC), with the work being done by Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA), Rwanda Development Board (RDB), and I’Institut Congolais pour la Conservation de la Nature.
