Gorilla, Rwanda


This picture was taken in the Virungas Volcanos National Park in August 2008. The family I photographed was the Amahoro (meaning peaceful). At that time, the family had 17 members led by the peaceful silverback called Ubumwe. As of Spring 2010, the estimated total number of Mountain Gorillas worldwide was 790. Nowadays this number has increased a bit due to international efforts on different projects. We were only allowed to be with the gorillas for one hour. A very short but amazing experience that will always be at the top of my African memories. The family was not very active that day but regardless of that, it was a good opportunity to get some very special images. The mountain gorilla (Gorilla beringei beringei) is one of the two subspecies of the Eastern Gorilla. One is found in the Virunga volcanic mountains of Central Africa. The other is found in Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.
