The loss of an animal is always devastating, especially when they are as precious as the endangered. mountain gorilla. To all those at the Senkwekwe Center and Virunga, we are so sorry for your loss

Posted @withregram • @virunganationalpark It is with heartfelt sadness that Virunga announces the death of beloved orphaned mountain gorilla, Ndakasi, who had been under the care of the Park’s Senkwekwe Center for more than a decade. On the evening of 26 September, following a prolonged illness in which her condition rapidly deteriorated, Ndakasi took her final breath in the loving arms of her caretaker and lifelong friend, Andre Bauma. ⁠
