Congo and Gorillas

Goril­las in Con­go include moun­tain goril­las and low­lands. The rare moun­tain goril­las in Con­go reside in the jun­gles of the Virun­ga Nation­al Park. The vast UNESCO pro­tect­ed area sits on the East­ern part of the D.R. Con­go, and shel­ters 300 moun­tain goril­las. This is a spe­cial habi­tat for Congo’s 8 habit­u­at­ed moun­tain goril­la fam­i­lies; Mun­ya­ga, Bageni, Nyakamwe, Rugen­do, Lulen­go, Hum­ba, Kab­i­rizi, and Mapuwa.
