Very Sad News about Bwindi Impenetrable Forest Mountain Gorillas

Bwindi has a population of around 340 gorillas of which an estimated 116 are habituated. Gorillas are intelligent, majestic, gentle giants that share over 90% of their genetic material with humans. All of Bwindi’s habituated gorillas are known individually by the rangers and have been given names in order to identify them.

Friend a gorilla reported that on Monday a Senior Adult female Bwiruka (local name for the one who knows how to run fast) was found dead by trackers visiting Nshongi Family in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Friend a gorilla reports that the cause of death is yet to be established but is suspected to be advanced age since she had been noticed to be frail and trailing the Family members most of the times in the recent past.

May her soul rest in eternal peace
