Baby Gorilla Rescued in DRC

In a victory for conservation, a poached baby gorilla was recently rescued by an undercover team in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

Thanks to a tip-off, three rangers managed to rescue the baby gorilla by posing as interested buyers, and arresting the poachers.

The baby gorilla, named Shamavu after one of the rangers, is now being taken care of by gorilla handlers at the Virunga National Park.
