Go to blog Paul Raffaele about his experience with the great mountain Gorillas

Sunday Night reporter Tim Noonan this week goes deep inside the jungles of the Congo to discover the endangered mountain gorillas who have managed to elude the rebels wreaking havoc on the species. Just as Joseph Kony and his LRA have committed horrific crimes in Uganda, Rwanda and the Congo, another group of rebels – the FDLR – have been threatening the survival of these gorillas. There are only 800 mountain gorillas left in the world, and Sunday Night encounters a group of these magnificent animals which have survived the onslaught.
