New habitat for orphaned baby gorillas


Two orphaned baby mountain gorillas are settling into their new home at Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The pair had been kept in an enclosed space in the city of Goma because of ongoing civil war in the area.

It is hoped the move could be the first step to releasing the gorillas into the wild.

Alexandra Mackenzie reports.
