It says animals feel when a kind person approaching them. And if you had any doubts regarding this, then these two happy gorillas are the perfect proof as they posed for some hilarious snaps with the guys who are risking their lives to protect them.
It happened at the Virunga National Park, a UNESCO world heritage site the in Democratic Republic of Congo. Here, some really photogenic gorillas and the park’s rangers posed for some unique selfies.
“Virunga is protected by a dedicated team of over 600 rangers. These local men and women go through intensive training, risking their lives on a daily basis to safeguard the park’s exceptional wildlife, including the last of the world’s critically endangered mountain gorillas,” the park’s website says.
While the rangers jobs is as serious and dangerous as it can be, it looks like they find some time to connect with the beautiful creatures they’re putting their lives in line for protecting them.
The photos were then shared on The Elite AntiPoaching Units And Combat Trackers Facebook page!
The two gorillas named Ndakasi and Matabishi are mountain gorillas, a critically endangered species. It is impossible not to notice how natural they act in front of the camera. And of course, how happy and safe they feel near their protectors.
However, this isn’t the first time when Ndakasi and Matabishi and the rangers are sharing some selfies time.
It’s really great to see the gorillas and the rangers sharing some quality time together!
