Email this review


 An attractive addition to the ``Nature Watch'' series, with the authors' appealing color photos on every page showing these endangered primates--found only in the central African countries of Rwanda and Zaire--feeding, grooming, playing, resting, and caring for their babies. The authors also describe efforts to save the mountain gorillas' habitat and to protect the remaining 400 gorillas from poachers. Organizations to write for more information; glossary; index. (Nonfiction. 10-14)
