NYAKAGEZI GORILLAS RETURN TO MGAHINGA NATIONAL PARK


Seven gorillasreturned to Uganda’s Mgahinga National Park from Rwanda last week.
The Nyakagezi group, the only habituated group in Mgahinga National Park left the country on November 18, last year and this is the longest time the group has spent in Rwanda, as they often cross the boarder and come-back after a short period of time.
The Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA) spokesperson Lillian Nsubuga in her speech said that she was not sure when the tracking of the group would resume. She however said that Uganda wildlife Authority (UWA) had started monitoring the Gorillas and so far they had not charged at the trackers therefore are still habituated, which is an indication that tracking by tourists could begin soon.
Half of the mountain gorillas in the world are found in the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Uganda. The rest occupy the Virungas mountains, shared by Uganda i.e. mgahinga national park, Rwanda i.e. Park d’ vior and the DR Congo.
