MOUNTAIN GORILLAS - Pablos Group hits 60 individuals!

News and baby pictures from the Dian Fossey site on yet another addition to Pablo's group.
It has been a record-breaking month for the gorillas we monitor from the Karisoke Research Center. Pablo's group, one of the three groups of mountain gorillas that we monitor and protect daily, is at last reaching an astounding 60 individuals! The size of this group has amazed researchers for many years as it just keeps growing and growing, under the leadership of dominant silverback Cantsbee and his second in command, Pablo.
