    Dec. 28 2008: Baby gorilla Wathaut, from the Mapuwa family group of gorillas, is seen at the Virunga National Park, near the Ugandan border in eastern Congo. The Congolese Wildlife Authority says the gorilla population has grown in an eastern Congo park that is home to some of the world's last remaining mountain gorillas. A census released Jan. 26, 2009, shows 10 baby gorillas have been born since August 2007 in Virunga National Park. Only about 700 mountain gorillas are left in the world, an estimated 190 of them in Congo around the Mikeno volcano.
