For decades, many conservationists have dedicated their lives to conservation of Mountain Gorillas a success story that has seen an increase in Rwanda gorilla safaris, Congo gorilla trekking safaris and gorilla safaris Uganda. Organizations like the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund protect and study endangered gorillas every day, something very critical in preventing Mountain Gorilla extinction rising from habitat loss and other threats they face and may face in the future. Mountain Gorillas tracked during Rwanda safaris, Congo tours and Uganda safaris are not the only species that gain from the conservation but many more millions of species.

Within the gorilla habitats are other species that are endangered flora and fauna species and these include chimpanzees, elephants, and leopards, as well as several types of monkeys. And there are many more, all important and all living in gorilla habitat and either endangered or threatened, including two types of pangolins, African golden cats, Grauer’s swamp warblers, hooded vultures, a frog, and even a type of mouse, golden monkeys as well as a cherry tree.
