On October 8, 2011, national park rangers from Virunga National Park confiscated a baby Grauer's gorilla from three poachers through a sting operation. The baby had been taken from the wild and most likely saw his family die trying to protect him. He was named Shamavu, after the ranger who rescued him. After arriving at the Senkwekwe sanctuary, the Gorilla Doctors arrived to perform a health exam. The Gorilla Doctors are dedicated to saving the lives of the critically-endangered mountain and Grauer's gorillas of Rwanda, Uganda, and DRC through health care. Our international team of veterinarians is the only group providing these animals with direct, hands-on care in the wild. www.gorilladoctors.org
