Dvije planinske gorile, koje spadaju među najugroženije životinje na Zemlji, nedavno su pozirale za selfie rendžera Nacionalnog parka Virunga u Congu, Mathieua Shamavua.

Rendžer je uz objavljenu fotografiju na Instagramu napisao da je to samo još jedan dan u uredu, a fotografija je privukla mnogo pozornosti na internetu.

You might have recently seen caretakers Mathieu and Patrick’s amazing selfie with female orphaned gorillas Ndakazi and Ndeze inside the Senkwekwe center at Virunga National Park. We’ve received dozens of messages about the photo. YES, it’s real! Those gorilla gals are always acting cheeky so this was the perfect shot of their true personalities! Also, it’s no surprise to see these girls on their two feet either—most primates are comfortable walking upright (bipedalism) for short bursts of time. Guys, if you shared our gorilla selfie post, please share our Earth Day posts as well! Conserving Virunga’s amazing wildlife is a constant challenge for the Park and our work wouldn’t be possible without your support. Matching funds have been pledged on every donation to the Park today, up to a total of $25,000—giving us the opportunity to raise $50,000 for Virunga! Visit virunga.org/donate or click the link in our bio to get involved and keep sharing our posts! Thank you! *We want to emphasize that these gorillas are in an enclosed sanctuary for orphans to which they have lived since infancy. The caretakers at Senkwekwe take great care to not put the health of the gorillas in danger. These are exceptional circumstances in which the photo was taken. It is never permitted to approach a gorilla in the wild. #gorillaselfie #gorilla #mountaingorilla #mountaingorillaselfie #selfie #earthday #earthday2019 #virunga #virunganationalpark #congo #drcongo #rdc #drc #protecttheplanet #happyearthday #wildlife #wildlifeconservation #conservation #natureconservation

Do nedavno su planinske gorile bile su na rubu izumiranja zbog dvostruke prijetnje - krivolova i uništavanja njihovog prirodnog staništa. Neprekidni rad na očuvanju njihove vrste je urodio plodom, ali u divljini ih zbog navedenih razloga ima tek tisuću, a iz dana u dan je njihovog staništa sve manje te teško opstaju.

Dvije gorile na fotografiji ostale su siročad nakon što su krivolovci ubili njihove majke, a odgojene su u parku. Budući da su cijeli život proveli uz ljude, nije vjerojatno da će biti vraćene u divljinu, prenosi 24sata.

Inače, Virunga se nalazi u planinskom istočnom dijelu DR Konga i prvi je nacionalni park uspostavljen na afričkom kontinentu - posebno radi zaštite gorila u tom području.
