So great about the 3 poachers getting caught, and the baby gorilla was saved. These evil people need to be put away forever. I am so upset about the growing danger of trafficking of baby gorillas. We are the voices. Thanks Lindsey.

Wow, incredible video. I love how these men were holding and touching the baby trying to put the baby at ease. But all of this is so painful.

I love love LOVE gorillas. Such an infuriating tragedy that they're still so critically endangered. I admire the bravery and dedication of those rangers and all others who struggle to protect those gorgeous, intelligent animals.They are up against so many odds. Admire their work so much, in fact, that I've just made a donation. Thanks for posting this, Lindsey.

When I WAS on FaceBook, in my Group there were 4 or 5 friends who are Rangers at the Virunga National Park. WE ALL MUST BE GRATEFUL to all RANGERS and THEIR FAMILIES because they RISK THEIR LIVES EACH SINGLE DAY FIGHTING AGAINST POACHERS!!!!!!!!!!
Actually, sometimes they informed me about the death of one of their closest friends by POACHERS!!!!!!!!

Oh my goodness. I am humbled by the absolute wonder of this incredible baby gorilla. I want to thank those who strive to protect them. That they are so endangered is a sad indictment of the how humans treat other animals. I wish this little one a long and healthy life.
