Mountain gorillas in Uganda and Rwanda have managed to increase in number despite the threats they face in their habitants. There is a possibility of preventing the extinction of these primates if conservation and preservation is encouraged. This has been encouraged by many organisations which have come up with many ways to protect these mountain gorillas; this has however helped in increasing mountain gorilla trekking safaris.
The endangered mountain gorillas are found in Rwanda and Uganda and also others found in Congo, there national parks are Bwindi Impenetrable national park,Volcanoes national park and Virunga National park . The local people who are living around the national parks have greatly helped in increasing the conservation and preservation of the endangered gorillas and this has greatly helped in increasing the number of gorilla tracking tours to Uganda and Rwanda.
However, the many people who are surrounding the national parks have brought about a great danger to the gorillas since the local people have encroached on the national parks , which has led to loss of habitat to the mountain gorillas, hence affecting the increase in mountain gorilla tracking safaris. There are also many other threats which are affecting mountain gorillas and these include; poaching, hunting, diseases from the human being and many more.
Research has shown massive increase in the number of mountain gorilla tracking visits to Uganda and Rwanda; this has helped in increasing the revenues of the country and also helped in developing the tourism sectors of Uganda and Rwanda. There are many other animals which are found in the national parks of both Uganda and Rwanda and these include; chimpanzees, elephants, lions, buffalos, antelopes and many more.
