Conservation authorities in Uganda, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) have finally rolled out a new population census to determine how many mountain gorillas remain in the Virunga area.

The census is being carried out collaboratively by scientists and national park authorities from the three states, under the umbrella of the Greater Virunga Transboundary Collaboration.

Christopher Masaba, the warden in charge of Mgahinga Gorilla National Park says a total of 16 teams will conduct the exercise.
