Rwanda is among the three countries in the world with mountain gorillas. On this day we would track the Susa Family, well-known for being the group studied by Dian Fossey from 1967 to 1985, deep into the hills of the Virunga Mountains. After nearly four hours of searching, the rangers spotted the group and we approached cautiously. It was pouring rain when we arrived and found most of the gorillas taking shelter underneath some trees. With less than 1,000 left in the world, mountain gorillas are critically endangered. You can help the crucial conservation efforts at the park by donating to the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund here.
