More than 140,000 watch stunning YouTube video footage from Rwanda

By now we all know that the Shelley’s crimsonwing finch is one of the rarest finches in Africa . We also know that the elusive finch inhabits the same habitat as the threatened mountain gorillas made famous by Dian Fossey, with her pioneering research work in Rwanda in the early 1970’s.

In the brilliant YouTube video titled : Gorillas…98.6 Human, and already enjoyed by more than 140,000, you get to see the exact habitat where both threatened species exist . The 22 minute video is beautifully filmed and highly informative and will be enjoyed by all wildlife conservationists

The Rare Finch Conservation Group, which is registered as a non profit organisation, salutes the African Wildlife Foundation for helping to raise the international awareness levels of the threatened Mountain Gorillas of Africa .
