n July 2007 a haunting photo made it out of the Democratic Republic of the Congo shocking the entire world. Six members of a family of rare mountain gorillas were shot to death at point blank range. Why would anyone kill these charismatic and highly endangered creatures? With only an estimated 720 wild mountain gorillas left on the planet—half of them caught in the middle of a war zone—time is running out. This is the story of a land under siege and a team of park rangers that is fighting back, risking their lives to save one of the world's most endangered species. Part natural history and part whodunit, Gorilla Murders follows the dramatic story of the race to catch the perpetrators and save the remaining gorillas.

The Urban Gorilla DVD-R
(Based on 1 review)
Category: DVDs/Animals and Nature/Animals and Wildlife

Meet a remarkable gorilla who paints while in captivity, and visit an innovative gorilla orphanage in West Africa. Traditionally, gorillas have been separated in sanitized cells for public safety and viewing. But with few successful gorilla births in captivity, zookeepers took a look at the outdated habitations—and then took action. They discovered that gorillas are group animals, which are unlikely to socialize or breed when isolated in pairs, and responded by developing zoo environments that closely resemble gorilla habitats in the wild. Far from the savage King Kong portrayed in Hollywood movies, you will discover that gorillas are gentle, noble individuals, each with a story to tell. Spanning three continents, The Urban Gorilla will forever change the way you see these magnificent creatures.

National Geographic dissects the fascinating physiology of this living fossil, from its 24 clustered eyes down to the tips of its stinging tentacles, and examines how man's impact on the environment may be creating a growing invasion.
