01 | Context
Long victimized by poaching and deforestation, Africa’s mountain gorillas are in the midst of a surprising rebound that is sparking new hopes of recovery.
The heartening rise in mountain gorilla numbers may be the most important ecological success story of our time. It has been based on collaboration rather than competition, on communication rather than isolation, on selfless commitment rather than selfish greed. In other words, it is based on a rather encouraging change, or even evolution: Humans have been acting like gorillas.
