Mountain gorillas rebound thanks to careful interventions

Alarmed by rising rates of poaching and deforestation in central Africa, Dian Fossey, an American primatologist and conservationist who worked in Rwanda and is the author of the book 'Gorillas in the mist' which was adapted into a film of the same title in 1988, predicted the species could go extinct by 2000.
