Endangered Gorillas: Only 700 Left In Uganda's Bwindi Impenetrable Forest

In the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, an area in Uganda along the country's borders with Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo, a small population of mountain gorillas live. They are among the last 700 remaining mountain gorillas in the world -- and their number is continually shrinking, pushing the species toward extinction.

Decades of armed conflicts in Uganda and its neighboring countries, and the continual struggle for natural resources, are some of the primary factors endangering the gorilla population.
