With the extinction of mountain gorillas all over the world, the presence of good conservation precautions in both Uganda and Rwanda has led to their increase and survival in the dense and thick montane areas of Bwindi impenetrable forest national park, Mgahinga national park in Uganda and Volcanoes national park in Rwanda.
Uganda itself host half of the world’s mountain gorillas in the world found in Bwindi Impenetrable forest National Park and Mgahinga National park with a total of 480 mountain gorillas. Apparently Bwindi hosts 19 habituated gorilla families and one gorilla family in Mgahinga national Park which adds up to 20 habituated mountain gorillas.
The Mubare gorilla family in the Buhoma sector, which is the oldest habituated gorilla family in Bwindi, joyfully announces the birth of a new baby gorilla. Karungi blackback is the proud parent of the newborn, following closely after the birth of another baby by Businza. However, seeing the new baby is proving challenging as the mother is quite shy, preferring to hide the infant and ensure extra warmth and care, similar to human mothers. Additionally, she is taking time to recover from the birth complications and regain her strength. Congratulations to the Mubare gorilla family on this joyous addition!
It’s as well an astonishing to find that it’s this gorilla family which possess the heaviest silverback in the entire jungle weighing over 200kgs. For visitors planning your trip this is indeed an exciting opportunity to meet these primates in their habitat and learn how they behave and survive in the jungle.
The birth of new baby gorilla in Mubare Family is a blessing to the industry towards an increase of habituated gorilla families and an increase in demand to explore more about these great Apes which share 98.5% of human DNA.
