A baby gorilla clings to his mother after playing and falling from some vines. That look of relaxed safety in his mother's arms, showing how similar to us they really are.
Sadly infant gorillas remain at high risk from poachers given their high value to traffickers who sell them illegally as pets, often killing the adults who fight to the death to protect their young.
Again Virunga rangers put themselves in danger herr to protect the gorrillas and their habitat. If you would like to know more or how you may be able to help, check out their website below:
