Gorillas and the rangers in extreme danger!…….

Anti-government rebels continue their attacks in Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Essentially, the rebels are holding the park's mountain gorillas hostage, threatening to kill them if government forces come too close.

Observation posts in the Virunga National Park have often been attacked by Mai Mai militia fighters.

They are threatening to kill a group of endangered mountain gorillas if the authorities come after them.

Wildlife Direct director Emmanuel de Merode said the Mai Mai attack may be a reprisal for a government clampdown.

"Our understanding is that this was a deliberate attack on the Congolese wildlife authorities," he told the BBC's Focus on Africa.

Almost 100 rangers in Virunga have died protecting the gorillas.

Hutu rebels and Mai Mai fighters have sought sanctuary in recent years in the park, during a long conflict that has led to some four million deaths.
But there has been a recent attempt to drive out and demobilise the remaining militias in the east.

The presence of the rangers and the gradual arrival of tourists is the hope for peace and prosperity for the local communities

La presencia de los rangers y los pocos turistas que llegan es una esperanza de paz y prosperidad para las comunidades del lugar

…cuanto me queda!
