República del Congo (MiMorelia.com/Redacción).- A través de redes sociales se ha viralizado la selfie tomada por un hombre mientras a sus espaldas se encuentran dos gorillas de pie, posando para la lente.

La imagen ha causado la sensación de miles de usuarios en redes sociales y es que además de ser increíble que dos gorillas posen para una foto, es más aún que los dos estén de pie.

El selfie fue tomado en el Parque Nacional Virunga, en República del Congo y no es montaje, los personajes que en ella aparecen son las gorilas Ndazaki y Ndeze (ambas huérfanas), Patrick y Ranger Mathieu Shamavu sus cuidadores con quienes han convivido desde pequeñas.

You might have recently seen caretakers Mathieu and Patrick’s amazing selfie with female orphaned gorillas Ndakazi and Ndeze inside the Senkwekwe center at Virunga National Park. We’ve received dozens of messages about the photo. YES, it’s real! Those gorilla gals are always acting cheeky so this was the perfect shot of their true personalities! Also, it’s no surprise to see these girls on their two feet either—most primates are comfortable walking upright (bipedalism) for short bursts of time. Guys, if you shared our gorilla selfie post, please share our Earth Day posts as well! Conserving Virunga’s amazing wildlife is a constant challenge for the Park and our work wouldn’t be possible without your support. Matching funds have been pledged on every donation to the Park today, up to a total of $25,000—giving us the opportunity to raise $50,000 for Virunga! Visit virunga.org/donate or click the link in our bio to get involved and keep sharing our posts! Thank you! *We want to emphasize that these gorillas are in an enclosed sanctuary for orphans to which they have lived since infancy. The caretakers at Senkwekwe take great care to not put the health of the gorillas in danger. These are exceptional circumstances in which the photo was taken. It is never permitted to approach a gorilla in the wild. #gorillaselfie #gorilla #mountaingorilla #mountaingorillaselfie #selfie #earthday #earthday2019 #virunga #virunganationalpark #congo #drcongo #rdc #drc #protecttheplanet #happyearthday #wildlife #wildlifeconservation #conservation #natureconservation

Fue en la cuenta de Instagram de virunganationalpark la encargada de aclarar la situación y además de explicar que este fenómeno en el que se ve a las gorilas de pie diciendo: ¡Las gorilas gorila siempre están actuando descaradamente, así que esta fue la foto perfecta de sus verdaderas personalidades! Además, tampoco es sorprendente ver a estas niñas en sus dos pies, ya que la mayoría de los primates se sienten cómodos caminando erguidos (bipedalismo) durante breves ráfagas de tiempo.

Virunga is home to around one-third of the world’s endangered mountain gorillas as well as four gorillas who reside in the Senkwekwe Center, the only facility in the world that cares for mountain gorillas in captivity. Located at the Park HQ in Rumangabo, the Center’s inhabitants—Ndeze, Ndakasi, Matabishi, Musuka and bushbuck Pongo—were each victims of poachers or animal traffickers as infants. The orphans are cared for by Senkwekwe’s dedicated staff whose extraordinary work would not be possible without the help of individuals and organizations from around the world who have stepped up to support conservation efforts in Virunga.  Senkwekwe Center is a unique sanctuary offering the orphaned gorillas the chance to lead happy and secure lives in the lush forest enclosure, which was recently expanded this year. To support the mountain orphan gorillas of Senkwekwe and other projects like this one, please consider a donation to Virunga by clicking the link in our bio #congo #drc #rdc #virunga #virunganationalpark #journeyintovirunga #giftofconservation #giving #senkwekwe #mountaingorilla #conservation #teamvirunga #christmas #newyear
