Rukina Silverback Loses his Life – Uganda Gorilla Safari News

silver back gorillaRukina the great silverback of Kyaguriro gorilla family in the gorilla trekking region of Ruhija is regretted to have lost his life in the night of 6th April 2015.

Rukina Silverback is known to have defeated Zeus and took over his leadership and has been leading the famous Kyaguriro gorilla family which has been used as a research group for the travelers on study gorilla safaris in Uganda.

The Kyaguriro gorilla family is one of the three families that are found in Ruhija sector in Bwindi and have been habituated for gorilla tracking.

Others include; Oruzogo gorilla family and Bitukura gorilla family thus presenting an opportunity for 24 travelers to track gorillas while on a gorilla safari to Uganda.

The Rukina silverback was found by the rangers on their daily check up on all gorillas  then found rukina dead which is one of the unfortunate things that one can take note of when it comes to the family of the critically endangered mountain gorillas.

The loss of Rukina is seen as a loss and his life is celebrated as it has been a leader and protector of his family members but also has fetched a lot of revenue from the people who have been coming to see it.

Bwindi impenetrable National Park has 400 out of the 880 mountain gorillas in the world and some of these gorillas are habituated and thrive in the four gorilla trekking regions of Nkuringo, Rushaga, Buhoma and Ruhija making it a famous haven for Uganda gorilla safari undertakers in Uganda.
