What country has the most gorillas?



  1. 0 Votes

    Gorillas live in four national parks in Africa.

    The Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in Uganda houses about 302 gorillas (as of 2006).

    The other three parks make up an area called the Virungas, which spans three countries: Uganda, Rwanda, and the Democratic Republic of Congo.  In this area, there are around 480 gorillas (as of 2010).

    So, if you combine the gorillas in the Bwindi park and the others in Uganda, it would seem Uganda has the largest population of gorillas.

      My first answer was slightly incorrect because I only looked up information on “mountain” gorillas.

      According to the World Wildlife Fund, there are over 100,000 of the western lowland gorilla, spanning the countries of Cameroon, Equatorial Guinea, and Congo.

      There are no good estimates for the eastern lowland gorilla, but at one point there were thought to be around 17,000 of them, mostly in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

      According to the map at the link below, it would seem that Gabon has the largest possible population of western lowland gorillas.
