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.

Throwback to 2007 when I met Tommy the mountain gorilla at the Sedgwick County Zoo in Wichita Kansas. That was a wonderful day! #sedgewickcountyzoo #tommy #gorilla #mountaingorilla #greatapes #2007 #kansas #wichita #summer #canon #nikon #dslrphotography❤️📷 #travel #states #discover #explore

Locking eyes with a 200 lb female mountain gorilla in Uganda in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. After seeing these gorillas in the wild eating, caring for their young, playing games, and problem solving, it is no surprise that we share more than 97% of our genetic code with them. What an amazing experience with @stacey_o_203! Of course gotta show some love to the best agent who always hooks it up @jetawayguru and to the most fly man in Rwanda who took us under his wing @henry_4_christ!

Happy Biodiversity Day — Awareness
Are you aware that #greatapes live in the most biodiverse habitats on the planet. When we look at saving great apes in the wild there is far more at stake that a single life, or a group of #apes. With the loss of great apes a forest loses a critical element of its diversity, and with it a key thread to its uniqueness. #Biodiversity is security against loss of clean water, clean air, land stability, nutrient cycling, climate change... wild great apes ensure it all. #wildlifephotography #virunga #mountaingorilla #greatape #worldbiodiversityday #rainforest #onlyoneearth #everydayclimatechange

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!

A six hour hike through the jungles of Rwanda could lead you to a sighting of the Isabukuru gorilla family - and we promise every moment will be worth it! Thank you for sharing this image @corrine_t!

FATHER FIGURE
232mm x 277mm (10 7/8″ x 9 1/8″) #Silverback mountain gorilla drawing. I visited Bwindi NP in Uganda and had an hour with a family of 18 #gorillas.
I was amazed to see two silverbacks, his eldest son was still hanging around the fringes of the family.
This work is the result of my visit. All my drawings are based on my own photographic references.

An infant mountain gorilla from the Humba family stares towards one of our visitor groups during a recent trek. The Humba family are one of the park's habituated groups, meaning they are used to being around humans.

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.

Come closer. Another one of my entries for the #rememberinggreatapes book. Again, this one wasn’t selected and I am still waiting anxiously to see if I have been successful in the final round. I fear that it is unlikely now, but still, Good luck to all the finalists.

Do more of what makes you happy 😀🐒 The Habinyanja Gorilla Family in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park started in 1997 although it was first visited by tourists two years later. The word Habinyanja comes from a local word Nyanja ‘meaning water’, it’s one of the swamp in the forest where this family was found. The family consists of 17 members.

Most memorable moments shared with amazing people in an unforgettable setting, VIRUNGA NATIONAL PARK... A National Park managed with passion, protected with passion and as soon as tourism opens again, visited by people with a passion for all that this symbol of hope stands for! Virunga has endured many setbacks and yet, her people get back up and greet each new day with hope for a better tomorrow. I stand in absolute admiration of this unbreakable human spirit! @virunganationalpark #virunga #drc #oldestnationalparkinafrica #people #spirit #wildlife #greatape #mountaingorilla @rangerprotect

Baby mountain gorilla...
Certainly one of my most amazing and breathtaking experiences of my life was seeing the mountain gorillas. There aren't many adjectives that describe this humbling experience sufficiently.
If you ever have the opportunity - do it!! It's not cheap but you can't put a monetary value on those moments!

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. 🌿🌍🐾🐆
