Mountain gorillas Republic of Rwanda

Author 'Chasseur de temps' A voir (Id 131962 ) : Mountain gorillas - We're on the Virunga chain 2500m on one of the seven volcanoes that form the border between Rwanda and the Republic of Congo Démocrtique. In search of one of the five families that we are allowed to approach, our guides will spawn with machetes a path through the vegetation of this forest. Their perfect knowledge of the site enables them to detect signs of recent passage of the silverback. At one point, the leading guide stops, points her finger in one direction. We scour in vain and finally finish this distinction through some thick vegetation dark masses. Silence is necessary, we move like shadows. Suddenly we figeons. They're here! Yes a few tens of meters we see three of these last representatives of a species in peril, but always present in large part thanks to efforts by Dyan Fossey. Emotion! Emotion!

Annie thank you to you for agreeing to follow me on this path that I have already had occasion to say, led me to the silverback, but also made me go back in time to allow me to get an idea of those moments that accompanied the birth of the dawn of our humanity. Exceptional experience that I am pleased to share with you: Your visit was well deserved.

Thank you to let us enjoy this special moment ... Not given to everyone to shoot a gorilla in his natural element. Bravo.

Cuckoo Hunter d. T. That's where I found you, great! A pleasure to see a nice picture of a gorilla. You had the chance to see. Super picture anyway and I love your comment. : 1:: 6:

Seeing your beautiful shot, I think back to the movie "Gorillas in the Mist" by Dyan Fossey I particularly liked and which moved me a lot and there I found that emotion. Bravo and thank you for sharing.

The film is remarkably true and deserves the awards and the welcome he has received his release three years after the assassination, a day after Christmas, Dyan, who had spent nearly twenty years of his life to be accepted by the silverback she loved more than anything. After having approached my turn, I want to say too that I saw in their eyes a lot more humanity in the eyes of some of our fellows. And if we had to convince some skeptics, I recall that it is not who killed the gorillas Dyan Fossey, and in another area, they are in no way responsible for the genocide experienced by this country in 1994.

Nice picture of a gorilla. On one hand it's nice to be able to "close" but another should not be too many visitors, it must disrupt.

You're absolutely right and it has not escaped those who have a fierce determination to preserve this population of Dos money while providing the means to cope with the ensuing and they are many! On the disturbance visitors: The number of the latter is reduced to a half-dozen people per day for each of the five families that can be approached. Despite a rather long entry fee, applicants are very numerous but rare elected officials are among those who present themselves without support recognized. The period of contact with the family is limited to 1 hour approached. The approach is allowed up to 10m. Prohibition on giving anything to gorillas or transport quelqu'accessoire either on the territory of gorillas. The use of flash or tripod is banned ...

: 2: Oh the excitement! It brings tears to my eyes ... I had seen reports on Dyan Fossey, it's been a long time, but I have never forgotten, I hope that, wherever she is, she can be pleased with the results of his dedication, he killed ! It's wonderful, Hunter Time ... : 3:: 1:: 6:

Dyan has played a crucial role in the process of preservation of these mountain gorillas. As such it deserves respect and gratitude of us all and not just because we still have the option of making such images. Just to be convinced to follow the research of scientists interested in the active ingredients present in plants that consume silverback to avoid certain health problems! Man would do well to stop sawing the branch on which it sits.

Yes Julie, you know very well in this kind of cliche, the device has no place. You prove it to us many times in your gallery and those who want to check are encouraged to go visit you.

Always nice to see that others share your feelings on certain subjects; be thanked in the same way as those or those who wanted to keep this in their gallery of favorites for a particular image and thus offer an additional opportunity to be discovered by other Feist.

Adrenaline rises progressively from reading the intro ... And here we are before them, with you, amazed. WC, I say thank you.

"Adrenaline"! You used the word just Anne. Tormented by the fear of seeing them run away, I'm not ready to forget the minute progress that has separated the discovery of these dark figures and when finally the first issues have been framed.

Wow still see these beautiful big ape got to be something. Too bad they are endangered. Bravo to those who try to save them. : 1: Very nice photo. : 6:

And see, yes it does not leave indifferent your comments prove it and I thank you. But having crossed their eyes is something else: it leaves traces.

If indifference was general, the risk would no longer exist because the disappearance of this species is already used. People have acted, measures have been taken. The bleeding was stopped. The species is it saved so far? The question remains. The future will speak. It will be what we will.

You see Domi, paradoxically, the real fun came later, once back at home when you can measure to calm the enrichment provided by such moments with the part of ignorance that they have scanned. At the moment, you try to keep your cool and unhurried setting situations that continue to accelerate your heart rate.

: 1: I can imagine the emotion that you had to take on seeing the gorillas, our brothers in peril, just by reading your description I had chills! They are beautiful when you think why they kill these apes are so close to home, the man is mad! Fortunately there are sages, people responsible, but often pay with their lives their actions! Yvon thank you for sharing these moments! : 10:: 5:

I will perhaps reassure you by telling you a little that I could check in 2005 that drastic measures were taken by the Rwandan authorities to try to save these silverback, measures that would bear fruit as the number of patients does decreases more and is even slightly increased.

"Seeing them in their midst" When you it is unbearable to see a wild animal sentenced to life (in my case) it remains a solution if you want to approach you at least once in your life: going home! For these mountain gorillas, it's simple: we know exactly where they live. The guides in the Volcanoes National Park are entitled to conduct authorized persons able to provide a minimum of effort. You see the Gipsy difficulties are not insurmountable and even completely negligible compared to the happiness experienced.
