Cameroon: first professional footage of elusive Cross River gorillas

This video could be the first professional footage of very rare Cross River gorillas, the most endangered subspecies of gorilla, filmed recently in Cameroon's Kagwene Gorilla Sanctuary, home to an estimated 16 gorillas. The Cross River gorilla is listed as critically endangered on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species - the estimated number is most likely fewer than 300 across its entire range in Cameroon and Nigeria.
