MUGARUKA, WARRIOR GORILLA SURVIVING THE DRC

My journey into the Kahuzi Biega Reserve led me through war torn East Kivu, in the Democratic Republic Of Congo. At the foot of the reserve there was a rash of gunfire. Villagers piled their belongings onto a rusted truck to flee approaching rebels.  Our security detail was waiting inside the park so we continued to the ranger’s station. We were assigned Papa. At seventy two, he is a second generation care taker of this gorilla family. After ten plus years of this brutal war, Papa and his team have located all the families who have survived the fighting, poaching and Ebola outbreak.
