Gorilla Group Reaches Top of Mountain in Rwanda
Ntambara's group, one of the nine mountain gorilla groups we follow daily from the Karisoke Research Center, reached the top of Visoke volcano today, at very high altitude. They are right on the slope of the crater lake, which makes it difficult for our trackers to go close, but the landscape is beautiful, even magical in scope.
Also today, four snares were found and removed by trackers who follow Pablo's group, very close to the group in the Kimbagira highland. The anti-poaching team will go to survey the area tomorrow.
