Mountain gorillas are an endangered species with some 700 alive. Nearly half of these animals live in Virunga National Park which borders Uganda, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. The gorillas are caught in the middle of the Congo's ongoing civil war between militia groups and the Congolese Army. This month's National Geographic magazine, along with a companion documentary, uncovers the question: "Who murdered the mountain gorillas?" I spoke with three people who know firsthand the plight these gorillas face: Dr. Emmanuel de Merode, a conservationist based in the park; Brent Stirton, a photojournalist who captured images for National Geographic; and Godefroid Wambale a wildlife warden from Virunga.
