In December 1985, Dr. Dian Fossey's body was discovered at Karisoke, the research station she had established high in the Virunga mountains of Africa, and where she dedicated 18 years of her life to the study and preservation of the endangered mountain gorilla. In that time Dian had struggled against ill health, opposition from the authorities, poachers, personal tragedy, and the isolation of Karisoke's remote location. Her strength of will, outspoken nature, and all-consuming passion for the gorillas earned her renown and respect and helped bring the plight of these magnificent creatures and her groundbreaking observations on their behavior to the world's attention.

"It's been more than 20 years since the publication of Gorillas in the Mist, Dian Fossey's indelible account of her adventures among the mountain gorillas of the Virguna volcanoes of Rwanda—and since her unsolved murder—and her story remains as compelling as ever. One of Louis Leakey's Trimates, along with orangutan expert Birute Galdikas and chimpanzee specialist Jane Goodall, who authored this riveting volume's foreword, Fossey not only pioneered the scientific study of a magnificent animal, she also imperiled herself by confronting the poachers invading the great apes' nature reserve.


A fresh perspective on Fossey's complex personality, profound devotion to mountain gorillas, and world-changing achievements is forged in a dynamic combination of Bob Campbell's stunning and intimate photographs, journalist and nature writer De la Bedoyere's nimble and moving biography, and Fossey's own colorful and, by turns, frank and dissembling letters to family and friends, vigorous correspondence never before published. This poignant assemblage reveals both the intense joy and immense suffering Fossey experienced during her 18-year sojourn among Rwanda's mountain gorillas, whose descendents, in spite of all the horrors that have transpired, live on in their misty, and vigilantly protected, rain forests."—Booklist, starred review

The Urban Gorilla DVD-R
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 But with few successful gorilla births in captivity, zookeepers took a look at the outdated habitations—and then took action.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.
