While leading my first tour photographing Mountain Gorillas in Volcanoes National Park, Rwanda, I experienced acts of nature that I never knew existed. It was extraordinary to be so close primates; the experience was intimate and meaningful. What made the journey even more incredible was spending time with like-minded photographers who genuinely cared for the protection of these beautiful animals, and documenting their remarkable life.
It looks like this cheeky infant gorilla is getting a little too big for their boots! Video by @tkachukkat
Diversity is what makes Africa one of the most incredible places to explore. One of the most diverse areas is Virunga National Park, home to the Mountain Gorilla. Happy International Day for Biological Diversity!
Because I’m now back at work full time, I’ve procrastinated terribly with finishing beautiful #babygorilla#mountaingorilla Hubert! Hubert is entirely original and contains only high quality plush faux fur, polyfill stuffing and 100% wool felt eyes, ears and digits. I would be willing to take an order for him here on IG to force me to finish him. Please comment if you’d like to adopt him and I can have him finished in a week. Invoice will be sent to the first person to comment and that person will get him as long as payment is sent. If no payment he will go to the next person.
Cost is $250 USD including domestic or int’l shipping, or a discounted $225 if shipping to east coast US! #softsculpture#gorilla@theellenshow#plush#creature#realisticplush#doll#monkeydoll#gorilladoll#animalreplica
Photo by @bernardorocarey. The mountain gorilla (Gorilla beringei beringei) is one of man's closest relatives (we share 98.47% of our DNA with them) and is critically endangered of extinction. There are only about 950 mountain gorillas left, living only in the volcanic mountains of the Virunga (shared by Rwanda, Uganda and Democratic Republic of Congo), and in the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park (Uganda). To have the privilege to see this animals so close in their natural habitat has been one of the best experiences that I had. That's why taking a picture of a playful and restless baby gorilla is like taking a picture of a hopeful future for this wonderful animal.
The picture was taken in the Volcanoes National Park, in Rwanda.
Fue un momento espectacular poder estar con esta hermosa familia de gorilas en Bwindi A diferencia de los zoológicos, donde los animales están enjaulados o confinados en jaulas o espacios muy reducidos (entre otras cosas), poder ver a los animales en su verdadero hogar, en su hábitat natural, es algo indescriptible. Ellos están en todos su esplendor por estar en su hogar. Siempre que puedan, vean a los animales en su verdadero hogar, vayan con respeto y humildad, y la sensación que van a tener dentro de sí mismos hablara por sí sola. Se siente una alegría y una emoción sin igual. Los animales cuidan de nuestro mundo como nosotros NO lo hacemos, podemos aprender mucho de ellos.
