Mountain gorillas rustle through Ugandas forest

Ugandas Bwindi Forest is home to almost half of the worlds remaining mountain gorillas, an endangered species.

The gorillas are a main attraction for tourists to Uganda, as many are habituated and accustomed to human visitors. Tourism revenue has funded some gorilla protection efforts.
Worldfocus special correspondent Martin Seemungal treks through the wilderness to learn how these animals are being threatened and helped — witnessing some precious new arrivals.

For more on endangered mountain gorillas, read an account from park rangers in the nearby Democratic Republic of Congo, where gorillas fall victim to the countrys ongoing war: Park rangers return to Congos imperiled gorillas.
