First Images Taken of Rare Gorilla with Babies

A conservation group has captured the first images of rare Cross River gorillas with their babies. Scientists once feared that this rare kind of gorilla had disappeared from existence. But, the images show it is reproducing as efforts to protect the animal continue.

The Wildlife Conservation Society, or WCS, had placed cameras in an area of Nigeria's Mbe mountains, where the Cross River gorillas live. The organization recently released the images, which were taken in May. The camera captured images of Cross River gorilla adults and babies.

A statement on the group's website describes Cross River gorillas as "the most threatened ape in Africa." These gorillas live in a small mountainous area at the beginning of the River Cross, along the border between Nigeria and Cameroon.

Only around 300 Cross River gorillas were known to be alive in the area, noted WCS.
