Mountain gorillas are no longer "in danger"

Abu Dhabi – Arab Sky News Mountain gorillas have risen from the list of "Endangered Species" after a strange and surprising increase in their numbers in the last 10 years.

An investigation this year found that the number jumped to 1,000 of 680 in 2008, which caused scientists to transfer it to the list of "endangered species."

"Although mountain gorilla numbers are good news, tension is still threatened and conservation efforts must continue," said Liz Williamson, an expert at the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

The famous gorilla, with its silver, attracts thousands of tourists who pay hundreds of dollars to see it.

Gorillas live in the volcanic region, which is covered by forests that are outside the West African ocean, where the borders of Rwanda, the Congo and Uganda are found. Its natural habitats contain strains that are not elsewhere, including gold monkeys, in danger of fishing, political disorders and diseases, including the Ebola virus.

"The biggest threat to mountain gorillas will be the emergence of a new highly contagious disease because it will be very difficult to control," said Williamson.
