In the heart of the Congo gorillas are under fire - their numbers are falling fast. In Kahuzi Biega, Africa's most dangerous national park, this film investigates the most endangered species - the Eastern gorilla.
The vast park is home to more than 80% of these apes, but it has become a lawless jungle battleground. The Congolese authorities, with help from conservationists from organisations such as the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund, the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International and the UN are struggling to protect people and gorillas from heavily armed poachers. Gorillas have become collateral damage in the scramble for the Congo's rich mineral resources. In the midst of so much human suffering, what chance do the remaining gorillas have?
