"Incredible": conservationists laud news of continued increase in mountain gorilla numbers

The outlook for eastern Africa’s mountain gorillas is growing brighter, as a recent census released on Dec. 16 shows that the subspecies’ numbers have risen since 2011. Scientists believe there are now at least 1,063 mountain gorillas living in the wild.


Tara Stoinski, the CEO and chief scientific officer of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund, said the results  of the latest census were “incredible, given what’s happening to other wildlife populations, and given the high level of threats that they face.”
