Rwanda Yahoo’s “Richard Bangs Adventures” & “The Green Living Project”

March 2008 & 2006

It has been so rewarding to have had two occasions to create awareness around the highly endangered mt gorillas, living in their quickly disappearing habitat at the base of the Virunga volcanic mountains. Being within feet of a 600 pound Silverback is exciting. I served as a principal photographer and the other, videographer/producer, both very challenging due to the limitations of both time (you only spend one hour per day with the Gorillas) and conditions (it’s a rain forest, and not flash is permitted). For Rosette and her team at ORTPN and Greg and the Gorilla Organization kudos.
