Gorillas on the increase in DRC

Despite all the problems in the Democratic Republic of Congo, gorillas are on the increase in Virunga National Park. According to a new census carried out by the Congolese Wildlife Authority there are now 211 gorillas in DRC which is thanks to 15 years and hard effort. None more so than the rangers who patrol the parks and face deadly poachers on a day to day basis.

This is a much needed good news story on what has been and will carry onto be a terrible year for DRC.
