 High in the Virunga Mountains, located within Uganda, Democratic Republic of Congo and Rwanda are the endangered mountain gorillas including the great silverbacks. The ones you see here are descendants of the family Dian Fossey worked with in the 1960's and 1970's.

These Rwandan children are students in a nearby Catholic elementary school, which I had the privilege to visit. Children there were happy to see us so they could practice their English. They also were excited to see the digital photos of themselves.
