Gorilla gorilla...

2007-12-22



After a long trip and hours of walking through the jungle we finally came apon a magnificent creature.

Gorilla gorilla, more commonly known as the Western Gorrilla. We watched him for some time and it was both exciting and moving.

Watching this gorrilla make his way through the jungle you could not help but think of the awful fight these guys have on thier hands. As if poachers were not enough these gorrillas are being wiped off the earth at an alarming rate because of the Ebola virus.

They are listed as critically endangered. This is the most severe classification next to global extinction.
