Gorilla Conservation In Virunga National Park

Gorilla Conservation in Virunga has been in darkness hours after the killing of five gorillas who are a member in the Rugendo family in the month of July 2007.  This raised more need to protect the park’s wildlife and not only gorillas but all the other species found in the park.

Ever since, the park has been through various security reforms and Institutional reforms so as to avoid this tragedy from occurring again. This help the increase of the population for mountain gorillas and they have increased tremendously. Therefore we can say that these reforms have been a success in the Virunga National Park.

Dedicated ranger force is always available and always risking their lives so that they make sure that the endangered mountain gorillas and other wildlife within the park live and are not threatened at all. The power they put in cannot just be ignored without recognition because without their efforts, at the time gorillas would be extinct. This has also called for the urge of calling more international organizations to step in and offer a hand in supporting these conservation efforts.

Rangers in the park always monitor the gorillas full time which is not the sake with other parks that Inhabit the same animal species thus a lot is required from them to keep the work prevailing. These include communication materials, boots and other safety gear. A lot of international organizations have tried their best in providing more so basic gear so as to enable the patrols keep moving.

As it is with the other habitats of Mountain gorillas, part of the money from each gorilla permit sold is said to be given back to the community so as to improve their social welfare and as a way of encouraging them to engage in the conservation plan. This has worked for Uganda and Rwanda.

So that it works out for DR Congo effectively, people have to keep tracking the gorillas so that more money is got and the conservation work goes ahead.
