The Gorillas of Bwindi - Dr. Gladys and CTPH by Turk Pipkin Writer, filmmaker, co-founder of The Nobelity Project
- Turk Pipkin
High in the mountains of Eastern Uganda, I'm standing a few steps from a magnificent silverback gorilla, who grabs a thick vine with both hands and uses his massive strength to yank it down from the trees. A cascade of foliage falls around him and he begins -- one by one -- to eat the vine's leaves. Spend a few days photographing mountain gorillas and you quickly learn that it takes a lot of greenery to fuel a 400-pound vegetarian.
