HABINYANJA’S SILVER bACK MAKARA SUSTAINS INJURY FROM WILD GORILLA GROUP

The famous month of May did not augar well for the famous Makara Silverback of the the popular Habinyanja Mountain gorilla group in Bwindi when he sustained serious injuries inflicted from a fight with a wild family in Bwindi forest.

However with fast interventions from the field vets,Makara was treated,wounds cleaned and antibiotics administered.The latest  reports from the field indicate that the dominant silverback has had a steady recovery process  from the wounds.
 Daily monitoring of the silverback was instituted to provide emergency health care should the need arise so as to save the silverback that is solely responsible for holding together one of the most stable habituated tourist groups in BINP – Habinyanja.
