Mountain Gorillas: Dian Fossey Field News

February's edition of the Dian Fossey field news is now available at Watching Bishushwe: From One Group to Another. It includes a couple of great photographs. I love the contemplative picture of Shinda.
Bishushwe, a 21-year-old adult female mountain gorilla, recently left Pablo’s group, one of the mountain gorilla groups we monitor from the Karisoke Research Center. After almost two months of traveling with other groups and silverbacks she finally joined her current group, led by silverback Shinda, where it looks like she may stay.
