Uganda Mountain Gorilla
02 February 2021
It is estimated there are 1063* mountain gorillas left in the world. Take a minute and let that sink in. 1063 left in the world!
Mountain gorillas only live in the dense vegetation of Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park and along the dormant volcanic Virunga mountain range.
Virunga National Park.is a UNESCO World Heritage Site internationally recognized for its exceptional wildlife and habitats. Virunga National Park’s headquarters at Rumangabo is home to the Senkwekwe Centre, the world’s only facility for orphaned mountain gorillas. With expert staff who provide daily care for the orphans, who were each separated from their family due to the impact of poaching, the Senkwekwe Centre is a unique sanctuary offering the gorillas the chance to lead happy and secure lives in their forested enclosure.
