Mountain gorillas are a species that is under threat of destruction. According to the data of the World Wildlife Fund, there are only 880 individuals in the world, although in recent years, thanks to the support of a man, their numbers are gradually growing. More than half of them live in the mountains of Virunga, a large group of extinct volcanoes on the border of Congo, Rwanda and Uganda. A month ago, information appeared that the Government of Congo was going to review the borders of the Virunga National Park, which has the status of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Apparently, this is due to the interests of oil companies, who dream of exploring this territory for a long time, torn apart by long years of civil war and suffering from numerous poachers.
