Wonderful article! Thanks so much. I am so passionate about the Mountain Gorrilas- Diane Fossey was one of my heroes!

Dian Fossey, Jane Goodall and Birute Galdikas were three young women who, thanks to Louis Leakey, brought the world's attention to the plight of great apes. I salute all three of them!

Nancy NG has incredible info and images as shown by this image of the Silverback in Virunga in the rain. We have so much to learn and we also need to bring awareness to other that their habitat like Masai Mara is being encroached upon almost relentlessly by eco tourists!
Animals in the wild need our protection! Their migration routes are being trampled on by 4x4's in Africa and the grasslands so desperately needed may eventually decline just as the wildlife populations!

Here are a couple of other websites about Gorilla's that i would like to share:

man could learn so many lessons from these powerful yet gentle creatures . i so wish the there could be a separte body set up with powers to entre any country and set up areas where these and othe animals live that are totally off limits to humans , under peneltay of death ,if caught there ,no excuse accepted for the tresspass.sadly i ask ,how many of these beautiful species will only be pictures in books in 50 years ? so very sad it be . thank you Nancy.

Thank you Nancy, these animals need to be cherished and respected, and I sincerely hope this will happen before it's too late. I highly recommend the movie "Instinct".

We have got to protect and preserve what we have left - for future generations, for our children. How can we let this slip away? And what will we say to our children and grandchildren when we do?

If we don't save these wonderful animals, we are absolutely worthless!
