Africa: Mountain Gorilla Conservation Data

Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, D.R. of Congo, Rwanda, Uganda, Environment, Technology

Over 5,000 days of Mountain Gorilla conservation data [1] in Rwanda, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo:

Fifteen years ago, ranger-based monitoring (or RBM for short) was initiated as a tool in the conservation of mountain gorillas. Whether patrolling the park for law enforcement or tracking mountain gorillas for health assessments or to facilitate visits by tourists or researchers, data is being collected and recorded on data sheets. Every day. That’s over 5,000 days of valuable data collected.
