DISRUPTING ILLEGAL WILDLIFE TRADE

A mountain gorilla is observed in Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo by an ICCN Congolese Conservation
Authority ranger as part of a gorilla census. This century, war and poaching have been very harmful to the mountain gorilla population. Estimates show total numbers dropping into the mid-hundreds at their lowest ebb. Conditions have improved somewhat, but gorillas remain an endangered species. Recent surveys indicate about 1,000 mountain gorillas are living in dense forests in Africa.
