Dian Fossey: Gorillas in the Mist

Thanks Dian 

Dian Fossey was an American zoologist who undertook an extensive study of gorilla groups over a period of 18 years. She studied them daily in the mountain forests of Rwanda,( and the DR Congo at Virunga National Park ) initially encouraged to work there by famous anthropologist Louis Leakey.

If you have an interest in the Virunga Gorillas the check out the Gorilla DC blog.

    1. It was indeed. I am wondering how I could convince them to do something like that for the guys who work at Virunga National Park building on her efforts.
