#TransformationTuesday Meet Wiva. She lives with her mother Wendi, an orphan we rescued, raised and reintegrated back into the wild. They roam wild and free with their herd, protected by our field teams. Meet other miracle babies:
Our friends at @SheldrickTrust have some good news!
#DYK African alpine bamboo is the foliage of choice for Volcanoes National Park's 700+ mountain #gorillas? @AWF_Official is working to plant 22,000 young bamboo trees in the protected area. Learn more:
Update on the gorillas: Imfura, from Pablos’s group, recently turned 12 and while he hasn’t quite developed his silver hair, he definitely has the right temper as he showcases his chest beat!

Gorilla Fact: Infants begin learning skills at a very early age. One of these skills is chest beating which gorillas use as a form of communication, especially when they perceive a threat and need to assert their dominance. Check out Duhuze practicing his skills!
And nothing better to see a 2-year-old practicing skills with such determination and energy! She is practicing swinging on a vine, having a little fun while learning how to use a crucial forest tool. But don’t worry, silverback Inkumbuza is there to catch her 😊
