Mountain Gorilla Conservation in Uganda

Mountain Gorilla Conservation in Uganda

Mountain Gorilla Conservation: Mountain gorillas are endangered species inhabiting the mountainous areas. They are found in Bwindi impenetrable forest national park and Mgahinga national park in the south west part of Uganda yet other Gorillas inhabit the volcanoes national park of Rwanda and the rest inhabit the Virunga mountains in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Mountain gorillas are 880 in number and these are the only ones left in the world and Bwindi impenetrable national park is the only remote and densely protected area with major strongholds to protect these species. These endangered species face a lot of threats which can only be solved by conservation.

In Uganda Gorilla conservation is done in the following ways:

Gorilla conservation is done through the public health organization which is a non profitable organisation. The organization works hand in hand to prevent the spread of diseases from humans to the mountain Gorillas as well as from mountain Gorillas to humans.

The members of the organization that is in charge of mountain gorilla conservation encourage the local people to adopt better health and hygiene which benefits the mountain Gorillas and they are emphasized through monitoring them, carrying out survey by leading the outreaches and education.

The mountain gorilla conservation goes on to improve the facilities to attract tourists and also to ensure that Gorilla trekkers do not bring diseases to the Gorillas.

The Uganda wildlife Authority has improved on the funding for Gorilla survey data. Uganda, has strengthened the UN peacekeepers in Gorilla range in order to secure border crossings and stop illegal trade and strengthening the long term training for park rangers and park headquarters manager in order the Gorillas to be monitored against poaching.

Gorilla Conservation in Uganda is done by promoting anti corruption in order to protect the mountain Gorillas. Most importantly people are encouraged to share and talk about mountain Gorillas as this will help to increase on the solutions for Gorilla conservation in Uganda.
