Gorilla News, Update from Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge, Rwanda

It seems breeding season is now in full swing in the volcanoes with  new babies from the Hirwa, Kwitonda and Agashya groups! All the new arrivals are less than 2 weeks old. The latest news has it that we have now jumped from 17 to 19 families in Rwanda’s Volcanos National Park. A new family came over from the Congo and one of the Silverbacks from a local family, went solo and shortly after went to Inshuti family and acquired himself to ladies! It’s a regular soap opera here in the land of volcanos, mist and oversized apes! Very sadly, one of the youngsters in Agashy was fatally injured in a skirmish with the Hirwa family about a month ago.
