El conmovedor relato de una las científicas más revolucionarias del siglo xx, Dian Fossey, que inspiró la película Gorilas en la niebla. Un viaje único a las selvas de las montañas de África que plantea complejas preguntas acerca de la responsabilidad del ser humano en la preservación de la naturaleza y qué significa tratar éticamente a los animales.
Gorilas en la niebla, el fascinante relato de los trece años que Dian Fossey pasó en una remota selva africana con el mayor de los grandes simios, se encuentra entre los libros más importantes jamás escritos sobre nuestra conexión con el mundo natural. Los extraordinarios esfuerzos de Fossey para garantizar que la selva y los gorilas de las montañas que quedaban tuvieran un futuro quedan plasmados en sus palabras y en las espontáneas fotografías de estas fascinantes especies en vías de extinción. Fossey combinó su aventura personal con un informe científico sin precedentes para completar un retrato inolvidable de nuestros parientes primates más cercanos. Aunque Fossey tuvo un final dramático, Gorilas en la niebla sigue siendo el legado inestimable de uno de los estudios de campo más largos realizados sobre los primates y pone de manifiesto su inextinguible pasión por ellos.

Diane Fosey paid ultimate price to get what she wanted from the Gorillas and protection of them from DRC rebels. Great tribute to her is to read her work. ( )

After I saw the movie "Gorillas in the Mist," I had to read this book

Gorillas in the Mist is Dian Fossey’s account of thirteen years spent learning mountain gorillas on the Virunga volcanic mountains.


Called one of the foremost primatologists while alive.
Although Fossey has been dead for over 25 years – she was killed in 1985, her ideas and contribution to conservation approaches still warrant recognition, if not application


Life and career

Fossey was born in San Francisco, California, the daughter of Kathryn "Kitty" (née Kidd), a fashion model, and George E. Fossey III, an insurance agent

Education
Educated at Lowell High School, following the guidance of her stepfather she enrolled in a business course at the College of Marin. However, spending her summer on a ranch in Montana at age 19 rekindled her love of animals, and she enrolled in a pre-veterinary course in biology at the University of California, Davis.
Interest in Africa


Fossey turned down an offer to join the Henrys on an African tour due to lack of finances, but in 1963 she borrowed $8,000 (one year's salary), took out her life savings and went on a seven-week visit to Africa.

In September 1963, she arrived in Nairobi, Kenya. While in Kenya she met actor William Holden, owner of Treetops Hotel, who introduced her to her safari guide, John Alexander. Alexander became her guide for the next seven weeks through Kenya, Tanzania, Democratic Republic of Congo, and Rhodesia.

Rwandan president and one of the country's most wanted criminals for his creation of "death squads," which killed 800,000 in 1994, was captured by Belgian police while trying to flee Kenya on June 9, 2001.

For years the FBI was unable to catch its prime suspect, Zigiranyirazo, because of the dogmatic influences, but that all altered when he was detained in Belgium for combat wrongdoings.

There are really no easy solutions. Reading Gorillas in the Mist filled me with awe and respect for these amazing animals. Can you imagine a world without gorillas? I’ve never seen an actual gorilla, but I love knowing they exist somewhere. And the thought of them no longer existing makes me tremendously sad.

From the moment you open this captivating non-fiction book about the mountain gorillas of the Virunga Mountains, you crave to know more of these "gentle giants".

Though it would be easy Ms. Fossey to stray away from the gorillas to her own private life, Ms. Fossey stays totally attentive on her unselfish voyage to explain to the world that these gorillas are not beasts but "gentle Goliath's".

She gorgeously paints the picture of the gorillas' close-knit families and groups! Ms. Fossey also brilliantly fit in her own knowledges with the gorillas. This volume showed me that humans and gorillas can have relationships and can be "friends".


Intensely thorough and enunciated by Ms. Fossey and her studies and sympathy towards these superb Animals. This volume goes on to detail gorillas and their lives as well as the battles of deforestation and the combat to protect them. You get to know specific gorillas as well as Diane Fossey and her lifespan. I praise this and will recommend it especially to animal lovers.

Much like when I reviewed Jane Goodall's In the Shadow of Man, I quickly fell in love with the gorillas that Dian Fossey describes in exquisite detail in her book Gorillas in the Mist. (You may have heard of it.) Dr. Fossey moved to the Virungas of Africa (Zaire, Uganda, and Rwanda) to study the mountain gorillas that lived there. That study ended up taking nearly 20 years. However, she wasn't only studying the habits of the gorillas but also the parasites, environment (rainfall), vegetation, and the other animals that lived there (elephants, buffalo, duiker). (Basically, whatever she and her team could study they did to increase their chances of getting more grant money and lengthening their stay.) One of the things that Fossey stressed was that it would take more than passive conservation (tourism) to keep the mountain gorillas alive and thriving. She found that active conservation was the only way to go which meant that she had to employ staff to track down poacher's lairs and destroy their supplies and traps. Basically, she was a bada$$ of the highest caliber and the surrounding villagers had a nickname for her (it wasn't sweet lady of the mountain either). She quickly earned a reputation for not backing down and for doing everything within her power to protect these creatures from imminent extinction (which is looking more and more likely). Between poachers, population encroachment, and decreasing territory for the different gorilla groups there were only 242 mountain gorillas left at the end of her nearly two decade study. There are even less now. Fossey's fervent desire was that governments and the people governed by them would want to conserve these animals because they lived in the area providing the only fresh water source for the region. However, deforestation to make way for increasing numbers of people and farms continued no matter what arguments she put forth. I had heard about this book and its movie adaptation before but it wasn't until I saw Ellen DeGeneres talking about it (on her birthday episode) that I decided to finally pick up the book. I am so glad that I did. Even if you only read the appendices (which are absolutely phenomenal) you'd learn so much about these amazing animals and the land they inhabit. You'd also bear witness to the dedication and passion which Fossey had for her research. I highly recommend you pick up a copy of Gorillas in the Mist and afterward that you do further research into Fossey because it makes it all the more poignant and meaningful (at least it did for me). 10/10 ( )
