Another Congolese Tragedy

As I may have mentioned a few hundred times by now, Robin & I just got back from our trip to Tanzania and Rwanda where we were lucky enough to see mountain gorillas in the wild. It was a wonderful experience, but it makes the shocking news of recent gorilla massacres in neighboring Congo even more disturbing. There are about 700 mountain gorillas and 6 billion homo sapiens in the world but some are not content with even that ratio as seven gorillas have been killed so far this year in the Congo.

One can find more details here, along with information about how one can help to protect these magnificent animals.
