Truly tragic what is happening there. Virunga National Park being oil drilled won't help either. As there aren't many pics of their habitat around, it is worrying to see how something so beautiful can be destroyed so easily.

Indeed. It shows the need for conservation efforts in captivity. Sadly, I cannot see this kind of habitat destruction and illegal trade stopping soon.
