Africa Travel are delighted to hear that the International Union for the Conservation of Nature has today announced that the conservation status of the Mountain Gorilla has been upgraded from critically endangered to endangered.
Against a backdrop of poaching, illegal trafficking and loss of habitats this news is testament to the continuing collaborative efforts of organisations such as the Gorilla Doctors, the International Gorilla Conservation society, Uganda Wildlife Authority and the Gorilla Organisation amongst many others.
The line between critically endangered and endangered is very thin, and much work is still to be done to ensure the population continues to grow but today's news gives the world great reason to celebrate.
If you are interested in seeing Mountain Gorillas in the wild then get in touch with one of our Africa experts today by calling 020 7843 3500 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
