Good news for mountain gorillas

Mountain gorillas—once expected to be extinct by the end of the 20th century—are growing in number in Africa's Virunga Massif, according to a new survey. "This hopeful news for mountain gorillas solidifies an upward population trend that started over a decade ago," declared Bas Huijbregts, manager for African species conservation at WWF.

Lions
Species spotlight: Lion

Lions are the most social of all big cats. They live in groups called prides, which usually consist of related females and their cubs. Males may live together in coalitions. Females do most of the hunting, mainly for ungulates (hoofed animals such as zebras and wildebeest), but they will also scavenge and steal prey killed by other animals.
