In Inter­na­tio­nal Gori­lla Day we’d like to high­light the work done by the CRPL, Lwi­ro Pri­ma­tes, regar­ding the pro­tec­tion of Grauer gori­llas, an ende­mic spe­cies from the DRC, which means that they only live there.

They live at the Kahu­zi Bie­ga Natio­nal Park. From Lwi­ro, indi­vi­duals help with vete­ri­nary, edu­ca­tio­nal, and mate­rial sup­port for the park ran­ger tasks.

In the video a sil­ver-back adult male comes down from a tree and rejoins his group. It’s not usual for the­se ima­ges to be seen.

If you colla­bo­ra­te with SOS Pri­ma­tes you are also con­tri­bu­ting to gori­lla protection.

If you’d like a rag gori­lla, hand­ma­de in Con­go by women with fun­ctio­nal diver­sity, wri­te to, and you’ll be making it pos­si­ble to help pri­ma­tes and the local com­mu­ni­ties ( check out the pho­tos in the comments).
