Mountain gorillas are playful, curious, and protective of their
families. They are also one of the most endangered species in the
world. For years, mountain gorillas have faced the threat of death
by poachers. Funds raised by "gorilla tourism"--bringing people
into the forest to see gorillas--have helped protect them. This
tourism is vital, but contact between gorillas and people brought a
new threat to the gorillas: human disease. The Mountain Gorilla
Veterinary Project is a group of scientists working to save the
mountain gorilla population in Rwanda and Uganda. The gorilla
doctors study the effects of human exposure, provide emergency
care, and act as foster parents to an orphaned gorilla.
