Mountain Gorilla (Gorilla beringei beringei). I took this photo in Virunga National Park in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. Conservation efforts have led to an apparent increase in overall population of the mountain gorilla in the Virungas and at Bwindi. The overall population is now believed to be approximately 790 individuals. There is a good management of ecotourism. The tourists fund the positive attitude of the local residents and armed guards for patrolling in protected forest areas.
