    BIRTH WELCOMED IN 2016 , Joy for the new born gorilla
    The baby gorilla was born among the Bushaho group in Nkuringo and giving it a name will depend on how it behaves in response to tourists and its group members.

    Rubanda — A new mountain gorilla was  born in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, eliciting excitement among Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA) officials and conservationists who have been concerned about the dwindling gorilla numbers in the country.

     The baby gorilla was born among the Bushaho group in Nkuringo and giving it a name will depend on how it behaves in response to tourists and its group members.

    "The newborn was discovered on August 22, a day after it was born, by UWA officials that monitor the movement of the habituated mountain gorillas in this area on a daily basis. The baby and mother are healthy.

     We are very happy that an individual has been born to increase the mountain gorilla population in our area

     The Bushaho group currently comprises eight members led by a male called Bahati and the mother of the newborn is called Bunyindo.

    They also revealed that according to the 2011 mountain gorilla census in Uganda, 480 gorillas live in Bwindi and Mgahinga national parks.The UWA official added that of the 36 mountain gorilla groups in Bwindi National Park, only 13 are habituated ready for tourism while the rest are wild and respond by either charging at or running away when approached by tourists.

    The officials  explained  that  mountain gorilla inter birth period observed in Bwindi and Mgahinga is about five years unlike in the neighboring virunga national parks of Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo where the inter birth period is three years. He said a pregnant mountain gorilla gives birth after about eight and a half months.
