During Dr. Jean Felix's recent observation of Hirwa group in Volcanoes National Park, the gorillas were using the backs of their hands to drink water- a rare sight, as gorillas usually get their fluids from the vegetation they eat. Dr. Jean Felix also took some great photos as the infants of the group tried to cross the stream.

The Gorilla Rehabilitation and Conservation Education (GRACE) center in DR Congo cares for 15 Eastern Lowland (Grauer's) gorillas, including Shamavu, a young male who was confiscated as an infant from poachers who carried him in a small backpack for a month as they attempted to sell him.
