More than 125,000 western lowland gorillas have been discovered deep in the forests of the Republic of Congo, at least doubling their estimated population, primatologists said.
For centuries the endangered gorillas were largely unrecorded, but a census by the Wildlife Conservation Society of the Bronx Zoo in New York City and the Republic of Congo counted the newly discovered populations in two areas of the country's north covering 47,000 square kilometers.
The newly discovered gorilla population now puts estimated numbers at 175,000 to 225,000.
