Only the fifth set of mountain gorilla twins ever to be reported in Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park. The mountain gorilla is officially listed as critically endangered. This image by Diana Rebman was in the running for the 2013 Gerald Durrell Award for Endangered Species.
Half of the world's last remaining Mountain Gorillas on the planet are found in the Virunga Volcanoes of Uganda, Rwanda and Congo and the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in Uganda, one of the most biologically diverse areas of the world. #Gorilla #TOMSAnimalInitiative
For this mountain gorilla whose mother was killed by poachers, the pain is all too real. In an emotional display of mourning, the dismayed gorilla holds onto park ranger Patrick Karabaranga for support.
