King Kong, thats what I called him. The dominant gorilla of his group.  After a 2 hour hike into the deep forest of the Congo we finally spotted the Gorillas. At the start it was just hearing the trees move around us. Just as the ranger cut the bushes with the Machette we found them!  Its very interesting to be so close to such primates.  #congo #thecongo #gorilla #virunga #forest #wildlife #safari #animals #africa #african #gorilla #alshami2018 #nature #travel #mygreatlakestrip #travelling #explore #exploregorilla #trekking #hike  #الكونغو #الرحاله_العرب #أفريقيا
Happy Earth Day! In honor of it, I would like to highlight again the heroic work of the Virunga National Park @virunganationalpark in DR Congo. Led by Emmanuel de Morode, the park’s staff are fighting corrupt oil companies who are trying to drill in the park, violent rebels who have already killed more than 170 rangers, and extreme poverty which has led to a volatile humanitarian and political situation. Their fight is not only to save the endangered mountain gorillas, but to save our planet. . . 📷 @terrance.j.williams . . . . . #awesomeearth #virunga #virunganationalpark @virunganationalpark #beautifuldestinations #natgeoyourshot #doyoutravel #bestplacestogo #natgeotravel #nakedplanet #ourdailyplanet #earthofficial #keepitwild #exploremore #natgeotravelpic #earthpix #wonderfulplaces #traveldeeper #wildlifephotography #globetrotter #conservation #gorilla #bbctravelshow
El #diadelatierra se nos empieza a quedar demasiado corto. The #earthday is not enough, take care of your piece of the cake.  Hace 30 años apenas quedaban 220 gorilas de montaña, hoy casi se ha cuadruplicado su población. Las cosas se pueden hacer bien, vamos a ser responsables con el lugar en el que vivimos, este planeta y la vida que alberga son un legado que debemos mantener. 30 years ago there were only 220 mountain gorillas, nowadays their population is almost for times that number. Things can be done fine, let's be responsibles with the place where we live, this planet and the life that is hosted on it are a legacy that we must save.

INTO THE WILD // Volcanoes National Park is the largest mountain gorilla habitat on earth and it has put Rwanda on the tourists' map again. The park is home to five of the eight magnificent volcanoes of the Virunga Mountains. One & Only group has just started to develop a new line of nature resorts here in Rwanda with two brand-new hotels: Nyungwe House and Gorilla Nest. Bisate Eco Lodge, on the other hand, is another amazing property managed by famous safari outfitter Wilderness Safaris. Gorilla trekking, during which you can observe gorillas with their families in the wild nature, is a must! 🦍🌄 DOĞANIN ÇAĞRISI // Yeryüzündeki en büyük dağ gorili habitatına sahip Volcanoes National Park, Ruanda'yı yeniden gezginleri ajandasına koymayı başarmış. Virunga Dağları bünyesindeki sekiz volkandan beşi burada. One&Only otel grubu, şimdiden burada Nyungwe House ve Gorilla Nest adlı iki yeni otel açarak yeni bir doğa otelleri serisine yatırım yapmaya başladı bile. Afrika'nın önde gelen safari organizatörlerinden Wilderness Safaris ise Bisate Eco Lodge adlı harika bir safari kampı ile kervana katılıyor. Her iki otelin de asıl cazibesi, konukların gorilleri aileleriyle doğal ortamlarında yakından görebildiği goril safarileri. 📷 Thanks to @ooresorts and #wildernesssafaris for the pics.  #nature #safarilodges #nationalparks #mountaingorillas #virunga #volcanoes #rwanda #africa
This might be the most important thing I put on @instagram. These films have changed my life because I was ignorant for a long time. I certainly don't know everything but these films made me need to learn more and led me to change in many ways.  Here's the short version: my wife and I fell in love with scuba diving on our honeymoon. Experiencing this whole new world beneath the surface was incredible. Naturally, when we got home, I wanted more.  Getting my first scuba cert wasn't enough. I wanted to be surrounded by the ocean all the time. So, I started watching documentaries about the ocean. First, #planetearth, then #blueplanet, and one after another, until I found @racingextinction.  I had no idea one film and one message would affect me so deeply.  The thing I'd come to love - the ocean - was dying. The ocean, the animals, the whole planet, really. And it took that movie for me to see it. I watched it at least 20 times. I had to go deeper. I researched and watched more. The Cove, Mission Blue, Cowspiracy, Virunga, What The Health, Before The Flood, The Ivory Game, Chasing Coral... I had to make a change. Start with 1 thing... First, meatless Mondays. Then, no beef. Then, meatless, period. Straight vegetarian. That was almost 3 years ago.  The point is that I was willfully ignorant, and lived life that way. If I chose not to listen or learn or care, I'm not obligated to do anything, right? Wrong.  Now, I know. And yeah, it kinda sucks. In March, the last male white rhino died. The last one. There won't be any more. They're gone. At the beginning of 2017, there were about 30 vaquita left in the world - the world's smallest porpoise. Now, there are about 12 . The ocean could cover the Maldives soon, not to mention Miami. The Great Barrier Reef is dying. 90% of the world's sharks are gone. The Leuser Ecosystem in Sumatra is being cleared out for palm oil (the crap in snack foods that's already killing you from the inside). The only place in the world where
Regrann from @virunganationalpark -  She did it!!!!! Angèle has completed the @londonmarathon with an incredible time of 3:51:42. Under 4 hours! She is in high spirits and we are so unbeliviably proud of her! Thank you to everyone who came down to cheer her on, and there is still time to donate! Go Angèle! #londonmarathon #virunga #virunganationalpark #drc #parkranger
If I had to choose one animal we share this planet with as my favorite, the choice would be simple. Gorillas have always held a special place in my heart. Their intelligence and gentle nature never cease to amaze me. Unfortunately, they are considered critically endangered. I hope and pray that the senseless poaching of these beautiful creatures ends before it’s too late. I highly recommend watching the documentary on Virunga National Park that is currently on Netflix. The lengths that the protectors of this park go to try to safeguard these animals will amaze you and also break your heart. We must all try harder to protect our planet and all that inhabit it. Happy Earth Day🌿🌍💚

🌱 GREEN, FOR EARTH DAY 🌱  The thing about rainforests is they are SUPERGREEN. It sounds obvious, but my eyes literally could not compute the level of greenness. + It’s basic photosynthesis: they are the lungs of this planet and they’re green because they do their job really really well. We need them like we need oxygen...because they’re the ones making the oxygen. Plus, they’re phenomenal. They’re like this crazy lab for the richest of Earth’s animal life experiments. I mean - have you seen pics of poison dart frogs? Or looked at an Orangutang’s face? There are 40 different kinds of Toucan for goodness sake. Nature REALLY went to town there. + As we all know though, the planet’s rainforests aren’t in great shape. It sucks. But here’s the good news: we can do something about that. + There are some incredible groups of people like us systematically buying up, protecting and saving rainforests all over the world. Acre by acre. Hectare by hectare. Pushing back the tide of deforestation so that our kids and their kids and their kids might still live on planet where they know what it feels like to just #seegreen. + So this #earthday I wanted to shout out two of them. First, @rainforesttrust who have protected 18 million hectares of rainforest globally since 1988, working with leading conservationists and local communities to buy up and save forests all over the world. And second, @treesisters_official , a women-led movement with the single-minded goal to plant 1 billion tropical trees, working with women in Kenya, India and Brazil to plant and grow new rainforests. +  It’s good stuff. More green please. Let’s see more green.  #seetherainforestfor #rainforests #conservation #environmental #planetlove #savetherainforests #nature #lovenature #green #naturalworld #lombok #indonesia #madagascar #kenya #brazil #amazon #palmoilfree #rwanda #virunga #janegoodall #loveherwild #savetheplanet #wwf #forests #bushcraft #woods #woodland #treelife
Missing the misty mountains of the #drc. View from the Kibumba Tented Camp in #virunga
The @virunganationalpark is home to the critically endangered mountain gorilla and several other species. In 2007, five gorillas from the Rugendo family were murdered. Since then, the park has undergone various institutional and security reforms. Virunga’s ranger force is dedicated to protecting these gorillas and all the animals who call the park home. Several of the rangers have lost their lives in the line of duty. This #worldearthday we remember those who lost their lives protecting our home.

On this Earth Day, calling attention to our fellow earthlings that desperately need our help to survive.  Visiting the orphaned gorillas at Senkwekwe Center in D.R. Congo was a stark reminder of the man-made  peril that confronts ecosystems and the gentle, beautiful creatures that inhabit them. . . . . . . . #earthday #earthday2018 #takeaction #beautifulearth #wildafrica #congo #gorilla #gorillasinthemist #ape #savethegorillas #drcongo #virunga #africa #rescue #sanctuary #orphan #travel #travelphotography
