[Protected Status: ENDANGERED] There are roughly 700 mountain gorillas remaining on Earth; nearly half live in the forests of the Virunga mountains in central Africa. Many conservation initiatives are meant to aid mountain gorillas, and it is believed that their numbers may be steady or slowly increasing. Still they continue to face major threats from habitat loss and poaching.



Gorillas are ground-dwelling, predominantly herbivorous apes that inhabit the forests of central Africa. The eponymous genus Gorilla is divided into two species: the eastern gorillas and the western gorillas, and either four or five subspecies.

A mere 24 hours after becoming a mother for the first time, mountain gorilla Chelewa kisses and cradles her little girl.
