Mountain Gorilla Census in Virunga Massif 2015

National park authorities in Rwanda, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) today began a new population census to determine how many mountain gorillas remain in the Virunga Massif. The census will be carried out collaboratively by scientists and national park authorities from all three States, under the umbrella of the Greater Virunga Transboundary Collaboration (GVTC)
Mountain gorillas (Gorilla beringei beringei) are classified by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) as “Critically Endangered” with the total global population estimated at less than 900 individuals split into two isolated populations – one in the Virunga Massif (which straddles the borders of Rwanda, Uganda and DRC) and the other in Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable National Park contiguous with DRC’s Sarambwe Nature Reserve
