    This is an informational book about how the Mountain Gorilla Veterinary Project protects and learns about gorillas. I enjoyed this book very much. I found the name they gave the orphan gorilla of Fearless because it shows strength and hope in a species that has been endangered/5.   Mountain gorillas were discovered in , and are one of the two species of eastern gorilla, the other being the eastern lowland gorilla. Both are classified as critically endangered, but with a population of only recorded in the mountain gorilla is considered to be most at risk.

    George Beals Schaller (born ) is a German-born American mammalogist, biologist, conservationist and author. Schaller is recognized by many as the world's preeminent field biologist, studying wildlife throughout Africa, Asia and South America. Born in Berlin, Schaller grew up in Germany, but moved to Missouri as a is vice president of Panthera Corporation and serves as chairman of Alma mater: University of Alaska, University .   “The mountain gorilla faces a grave danger of extinction—primarily because of the encroachments of native man upon its habitat,” she wrote. Her book, Gorillas in the Mist, an affecting blend of field journal and memoir, and especially the feature movie of the same name, brought global attention to the animal’s plight.   A gorilla that thinks it is in danger will first make threats. If the human ignores the threat display, or surprises the gorilla or gets in its way, it may then escalate to thumping, scratching.

    Mountain gorillas have an extremely restricted habitat, living only in a small range of volcanoes at the intersection of Uganda, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo, and in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park about 20 miles north. Although European explorers heard rumors of these forest-dwelling giants in the s, they were not. According to the most recent census, the mountain gorillas introduced to the world in Gorillas in the Mist, Fossey’s book and the film about her work, have grown their ranks from animals in. her groundbreaking work studying the mountain gorillas of the Virunga mountains. She set up her tents between Mt. Karisimbi and Mt. Visoke, and created the name “Karisoke.” Fossey soon realized that the mountain gorillas’ survival was in extreme danger, with only about left at the time. She then founded the “Digit Fund” to raise.
