Baby Mountain Gorilla with Mom -- Endangered Species: Gorilla Beringei
Photographer: Linda Klipp
Location: Virunga Volcanoes National Park, Rwanda
Story: 
We trekked for Mountain Gorillas in Virunga Volcanoes National Park, Rwanda and the trackers found us a Gorilla group with rare twins. This little one was full of energy periodically poking at mom to provoke a reaction. It was incredible to be within a few meters of these amazing and endangered animals.
