IGCP reports gorilla deaths

The International Gorilla Conservation Programme (IGCP) has just learned that one mother and three infant mountain gorillas have died in Volcanoes National Park, Rwanda, home to an estimated 380 of the highly endangered great apes.

The deaths were discovered over a couple of days and coincided with heavy rains that have dramatically cooled temperatures and occasionally disrupted gorilla monitoring activities .For a full report visit the IGCP website
