Gorillas seems to pose extraordinary selfie with anti-poaching rangers
For rangers at Virunga National Park, one day at work can lead to endangered gorillas, conservation work under difficult conditions and occasional self-confidence.
On Thursday, a ranger used Facebook to share a picture of what he called "another day in the office."
He sent a picture of himself with two gorillas who soon spread over social media. The big monkeys stand upright and apparently make up for the picture.

One day, several exclusions, analyzes and extras.
The 600 anti-poaching team at Virunga National Park in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is trained to protect animals, including all the country's critically endangered mountain gorillas.
The team of rangers consists of local men and women.
The park's website says that rangers risk "their lives every day to protect the park's unusual wildlife".
The risk of violence to rangers is so great that officials closed the park gates from May 2018 to February 2019, following a ranger's death and the kidnapping of two British tourists.
Despite the turmoil surrounding it, Virunga is also home to more than half of the global population of mountain gorillas.
