The project revisited some images taken during the writing of my charity book, Rushegura, about the life of a mountain gorilla family, but this time focus purely focus on the hands & feet of these magnificent creatures. Gorillas have a DNA match of over 98% to humans, but we are worlds apart in populations, with the estimated Mountain Gorilla numbers of just 880 worldwide, to the human population of 7.4billion.
The mountain gorilla (Gorilla beringei beringei) is one of the two subspecies of the eastern gorilla. There are two populations. One is found in the Virunga volcanic mountains of Central Africa, The other is found in Uganda's Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Some primatologists consider the Bwindi population in Uganda may be a separate subspecies, though no description has been finalised.
