About this photo: “Once the civil war ended in the area around Kahuzi-Biega National Park (Democratic Republic of Congo) in 2004, the birthrates in this particular group of gorillas skyrocketed. There had been just a few births during the war, but when a team from the Field Museum visited the park in 2012 there were 12 babies! (-Josh)”

Dear Josh: I couldn´t resist to add a photo – of unknown author – that is a symbol of a mother´s generosity. Cheers, Oscar
