Rwanda’s Mountain Gorillas
This is a nice story about a special lady called Dian Fossey who really liked her Gorilla friends. She worked with the Gorillas in Rwanda in Africa and she is responsible for helping humans understand a lot about my Gorilla friends.She is a very famous lady and very much loved.
Tracking gorillas here is an experience that tops bucket lists, but before I snap up one of the 80 permits allocated daily to see these primates, I have decided to follow in the footsteps of the woman who helped save them from extinction. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the death of Dian Fossey, an American zoologist who came here to study gorillas in the Sixties, and ended up staying until her murder almost two decades later.”This is a pilgrimage,” explains my guide, Francis Bayingana. “People walk this trail because they want to pay tribute to Dian Fossey’s work and feel like they are part of it.”
