Favorite Quote

Many people left, but I felt obligated to stay with the gorillas here. You must justify why you are here on this Earth. Gorillas justify why I am here. They are my life. So if it is about dying, I will die for the gorillas.

André Bauma, gorilla caretaker


The vibrant ecosystems of Earth are under serious threat. As humans continue to exploit natural resources around the globe, habitats are destroyed, and biodiversity is devastated. Without rampant conservation efforts, even more will be lost.

Virunga is a 2014 documentary about the Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo, a safe haven for thousands of animals, including the endangered mountain gorillas.

Unfortunately, the park is under constant attack from every angle. Poachers seek to pillage the wildlife of Virunga, and foreign companies are determined to find a way to drill for oil within the park.

There are also people giving their lives to defend the park and its animals, hoping to preserve Virunga for generations to come.
