Mountain Gorillas - Full Documentaries Film

This article talk about Mountain Gorillas Documentaries .Many people have difficulty describing his first encounter with the gorillas We will Discuss it In our Documentary channel. The emotional, magical, extraordinary - just some of the words used by the few that are not words. When you see these animals for yourself, you can be sure you will feel the same. 
But what are the mountain gorillas? 
There are three types of gorilla - the mountain gorilla and the gorilla lowland eastern and western. They are huge creatures, which weigh up to 200 pounds. As expected, they are incredibly strong, but surprisingly smooth and peaceful. There are between 50,000 and 100,000 gorillas, all living in central Africa. Most of them are western lowland gorillas. There are only 700 mountain gorillas left on the planet, what endangered species at risk of extinction. This is mainly due to a history of widespread and unregulated poaching and the progressive deforestation of their natural habitat for agriculture. Even now, the fate of the gorillas closely related to the political and economic situation in the region. 
However, there is no need to panic at the moment; through tourism, international support and extensive information campaigns, the number of mountain gorillas in constant growth. Although we are not yet out of danger, view more secure future that only a few years ago. 
It is interesting that mountain gorillas were unknown to Europeans until early last century. They were first discovered in 1902, but it was only the methodical study of George Schiller behavior in the U.S.S.R. and through the work of Diana Fosse in 1960 and 1970, which eventually became famous. Probably the most famous book about gorillas is "Gorillas in the Mist", the journal of Diana Fosse, who became a movie of the same name in the U.S.S.R.. 
Mountain gorillas live in a very small area on the border between Uganda, Rwanda and Congo. They can be easily identified in the other two types of gorilla, because they have longer and thicker layers. Typically, 20 individuals living in groups of 7, although groups of up to 50 are common. Their diet is mainly vegetarian, with the exception of certain insects such as ants, which are an important source of protein. 
The troops are generally formed around a dominant silver - a sexually mature male, so called because the back turns silver around 15 years old - and can contain one or two silverback subordinates, three or four women and youth . Females are easily moved from one troop to another, even if normally remain loyal to a man when played with him. They are very sedentary animals and just get an average of 1 km per day. But they never stay in the same place for more than two nights. This is to preserve habitats and avoid attracting predators like leopards that can attack their young. 
It must be said, however, that gorillas have no natural enemies except man, who has hunted for food, and memories as heads or hands. Because of this, when gorilla trekking, only become forces may be addressed. There are about 15 soldiers of the mountain gorillas are used to people. Tracking them is a relatively simple task and anyone who is able should reasonably be able to. You stand an excellent chance to see them, although it can take from 30 minutes to six hours. In general, one or two hours is enough to find them. 
Trekking usually starts around 8:00, when the Rangers to inform the party and explain some very important rules. These include never get less than 8 meters to the gorillas, never sneeze in front of them and never eat or drink in their presence. The rules are mainly to protect the gorillas, as they may be vulnerable to human diseases; there has been no case of a wounded gorilla tourist for a habit. 
Gorillas are now a fundamental part of the tourism industry in Uganda. 10% of the share permissions assigned to local communities, but more importantly creates gorilla trekking needs of hotels and other infrastructure that is an important source of capital. Far from being a commercial attraction operating as a zoo, gorilla trekking are the main factor contributing to their survival while helping local communities to advance and improve their conditions. 
Currently there are four places where you can ride gorillas: 
Wind National Park 
Gashing National Park 
Vicuna National Park in the Rwandan side 
Vicuna National Park in the Congolese side. 
The first step is to get a permit to walk. Gorilla Permits really are not cheap at around $ 500, but worth every penny - after seeing the gorillas, nobody complains that it was too expensive. Can also be difficult to get permission though. 
In Wind, it is generally very difficult to get someone to UA (Uganda Wildlife Authority) sell permits up to 3 years in advance, and in many cases it is impossible to get within three or four months in advance. 
Gashing, on the border with Congo, unfortunately, not a permanent resident population, because the gorillas often cross the border during the year, and hiking is not allowed when in the Congo. 
To obtain a license in the Vicuna in the Rwandan side is usually a good solution, but permission must be booked through Rwanda, so it is sometimes difficult. 
Finally, a new option to book them for the Congolese side of the Vicuna National Park. This is the most accessible park, since it is only 16 km from Kaiser in Uganda. It is also the cheapest and most importantly, the easiest place to get a permit, as it only opened in 2004, the demand for this condition is still very low. 
Mountain gorillas are really interested in people - they are very curious, and look what you do, you might be thinking how weird we are. When I went to walk in Gashing Gorilla was a female who looked me straight in the eyes for several minutes. I often wondered what he was thinking, and I had a very strong feeling that she was thinking exactly the same to me: "What he thinks and why he had come here to watch me," was one of the best and most exciting days in my life. 
In summary, trekking gorillas an excellent example of successful sustainable tourism, besides being one of the most amazing experiences of the land
