Gorillas unter Stress

Dieser Film wird am Dienstag, 15.09.2020 hier online präsentiert.

Hope for the last mountain gorillas: Their number has risen to 1063! A success story of species protection. But can it go on like this? What happens if the population grows but its habitat does not? Wild mountain gorillas can only be found in two small protected areas in Eastern Africa. Studies by international researchers show that the stress level of the animals is increasing. What are the limits of species protection and how do experts react to the new challenges?
