Product Description

Product Description

Primatologist Magdalena Bermejo is a researcher in the Congo Basin dedicated to understanding the western lowland gorilla. Here we watch her at work, studying the family of a 350-pound male named Apollo in its dense jungle habitat. Narrated by Betsy Ames.

From the Back Cover

Deep within the dense jungle of the Congo Basin, people are bringing the once-deserted village of Lossi back to life.

In the spirit of Jane Goodall's work with chimps, Explorer joins primatologist Magdalena Bermejo as she conducts groundbreaking research of the western lowland gorilla in its natural environment. Skilled local trackers help Bermejo and Illera look for clues in crushed leaves, half-eaten plant stems, and dung. The team is finally rewarded in an area less than two miles outside of Lossi, surrounded with ancestral eyes peering from the forest. Bermejo focuses her study on a magnificent 350-pound male she names Apollo and his family.

Journey with Explorer into the heart of equatorial Africa to sit amidst swarms of sweat bees and stinging ants that would try the patience of the most dedicated biologists for an intimate view of a noble silverback and his tribe.

If you are interested in gorillas avoid this video. It tells you nothing of interest about them and you see them for a total of less than five minutes. However, if you are interested in the process of making documentaries about gorillas and in ways of encouraging neighbouring communities to develop an environmental concern for the gorillas then this is the film for you. Beautiful scenery and interesting people. The film basically follows two Europeans as they attempt a study of lowland gorillas. It traces their attempts to get the locals involved in their project. This in itself is interesting but I would also like to see the follow up when you actually learn about the gorillas.
