Travel to Africa for a human and gorilla encounter like no other.
A note from the filmmaker: "After exploring the issues of human genocide in Darfur and Rwanda, I thought I had lost all hope in humanity....until I had an encounter with the Mountain Gorillas of Rwanda. How Ironic the one creature that is deemed all violent would be the most pacifist. This is explore's most popular film and a must see for everyone. Warmly, Charlie. P.S. To fully understand my state of mind, watch Darfur and Rwanda as well."
Craig Sholley of AWF teaches us about his organization's efforts to preserve gorillas in Rwanda, of which only 720 remain. Explore the species that is 98.6% the same as human beings.
