MOUNTAIN GORILLAS - DFGFI Field News

Great news from February's Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund Field News.
The new year started wonderfully with news of a gorilla birth in Beetsme's group, one of the three mountain gorilla groups we track regularly from the Karisoke Research Center. Trackers arriving in the group on the morning of the first of January were greeted by Bukima, a young adult female, and her newborn infant.
Beetsme's group is the same group to which our website sponsored infant Urwibutso belongs. So he has a new playmate! Excellent!
