The release of photos of endangered Cross River gorillas which have been long thought to be extinct has stirred up a lot of excitement on the internet.
Wild Conservation Society (Nigeria), an international NGO that has been partnering with local communities on coordinated conservation of the species, released a video which showed a group of gorillas including offsprings backed by adult females.
The images of the Cross River gorillas (Gorilla gorilla diehli) which are the most endangered gorilla subspecies, were captured in the Mbe Mountains in Nigeria.
Their count is around 300 individuals and they are found only in an isolated region along the Nigeria/Cameroon border
