Episode Summary

National Geographic presents an informative and engaging look at the mysterious mountain gorilla of central Africa - a species once numbering in the thousands, that has now dwindled to a precious few. Contrary to its King Kong image, the gorilla is a shy and retiring creature. Renowned scientist Dian Fossey fought to protect these gentle beasts from the destruction of poachers in the volcanic mountain of Rwanda. In England, charismatic zoo director John Aspinall has become best friends with the 20 gorillas that live on his country estate. And near San Francisco, Koko, the famed lowland gorilla, demonstrates her amazing prowess at communicating with American Sign Language.moreless
