They remain in Uganda (Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park), the Democratic Republic of Congo (Virunga National Park), and Rwanda (Virunga National Park) (Volcanoes National Park). Researchers looked at 858 images shared under two hashtags on Instagram from 2013-2019 — #gorillatrekking and #gorillatracking, the study said. 86 percent of the number showed individuals within four meters (13.1 feet) of gorillas, and 25 of those pictures showed gorillas being reached by visitors.
