Mountain Gorillas

Have you seen the film Gorillas in the Mist?

Why am I asking you this? Well, it's about one of my favourite mammals - Gorillas, and it also happens to be about one of heroines too, Dian Fossey. Dian was murdered on 26th December 1985, a few weeks before her 54th birthday. She was laid to rest in the graveyard behind her cabin at Karisoke, next to her beloved Digit, the silverback she so admired.

This is my video from a trip taken back in 2006, I have to go back again soon it's been too long, and if you watch it you might just understand why.

When you realize the value of all life, you dwell less on what is past and concentrate on the preservation of the future. — Gorillas in the Mist.
