Gentle Gorillas, Violent Times
Conservationists have put in years of hard work in central Africa in order to prevent gorillas from becoming completely extinct, but now only 600 mountain gorillas remain on just 285 square miles of land. Three hundred of them inhabit a small forested area on the slopes of the Virunga volcanoes, surrounded by villages. The other 300 live twenty miles north in Uganda’s forest, which is now a protected area known as Bwindi impenetrable National Park. This is the total world population of mountain gorillas living in the wild.
People tend to view gorillas as fierce, savage animals, so I approached them cautiously. The gorillas soon accepted my presence. If you look into gorilla’s eyes, you see gentleness and intelligence. Unlike the clownish chimpanzee, gorillas are calm and shy. They do play, but sometimes they seem almost embarrassed by their own high spirits. They spend their thirty to forty-year lives mostly in mountain forests, eating thistles and bamboo shoots and sitting thoughtfully. Their patience and gentleness is very attractive to human observers.
Yet the mountain gorillas have suffered greatly. Throughout the first quarter of the 20th century, more than fifty gorillas were killed or captured in Virunga: then, in 1925, Carl Akeley of the American natural History Museum encouraged Belgium to establish Africa’s first national park. However, when civil war broke out in 1960, forcing the Belgium park staff to leave, hunters were free to hunt the gorillas. Many were captured so that their heads and hands could be sold to tourists as souvenirs.
By 1981 there were only 250 mountain gorillas left. A wildlife conservation society in New York began “gorilla tourism” and an educational programme for the Rwandans. This created greater awareness of gorillas and their endangered habitat. The conservation group trained gorillas so that they were comfortable being observed at close quarters. Tourists paid large amounts to see them, and Rwanda made a profit; it became a model of conservation.
Recently, civil war has again threatened the existence of gorillas, and organizations are reinvesting in land protection and tourist schemes. For the first time ever, people and gorillas are dependent on each other for survival. The Rwandans need the money the gorillas attract and gorillas desperately need protection. Farmland has been taken by the state and the farmers removed from their land: despite this, there is a real love for the gorillas. I remember what Nshogoza, my guide, said: “When I was a boy, I heard that gorillas were men who were very bad and who went to live in the forest: but gorillas are better than us. They are peaceful. They have no tribes. When they fight they have a good reason. We fight for nothing.” In a sense, Nshogoza is right.
