Amongst the mountain gorillas

For years the mountain gorilla has been hunted and exploited by humans, and with less than 900 thought to remain in the wild a close encounter with one of these majestic creatures is truly a once in a lifetime experience. This video of the week offers a glimpse into the natural habitat of the mountain gorilla on a trek through the dense rainforest of Bwindi National Park in Uganda. Through the verdant overgrowth flashes of movement are seen, a furry hand wraps around a tree truck, when suddenly you realise that they have stumbled into the heart of a family community.
