The Gorillas Dian Fossey saved are facing new challenges

3 posts in this topic

"Clashes between groups, which raise the odds gorillas will suffer injuries or commit infanticide to wipe out a competing male’s genes, are six times as frequent now as 10 years ago.   These problems would not be so acute if the mountain gorillas had unlimited room to roam. But Volcanoes National Park is just 62 square miles, and a rising sea of humanity, hungry for more farm and grazing land, laps at its boundary."
