In this picture taken Saturday, Sept. 15, 2012 and released by Virunga National Park on Monday, Sept. 24, 2012, a baby Grauer's gorilla that had been poached from Kahuzi-Biega National Park is seen at the Senkwekwe Orphan Gorilla Center at Virunga National Park in eastern Congo. Virunga National Park says the rescue of two poached baby Grauer's gorillas raises fears that other members of the endangered species found only in eastern Congo have been killed. Fewer than 4,000 Grauer's gorillas remain, down from about 17,000 in 1995.
