Five babies have been born in the last six weeks, and all of the newborns belong to the Rushegura clan, a gorilla family settled in the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, near to Uganda's border with the Democratic Republic of Congo.
"This is highly unusual; it's an incredible blessing. As conservationists, we're chest-thumping, we are excited," UWA spokesperson Bashir Hangi said.
The six newborns represent an unusual demographic increase, aside from the three births recorded in 2019.
In a bid to promote conservation around protected areas, WWF Uganda has highly supported groups of young ex poachers who are now working as whistle blowers and protectors of the wildlife as they practice alternative economic activities. #NewDealForNatureUG@NatureDealpic.twitter.com/MMsYl7rDv2
