Recently, a heartbreaking photo of a baby gorilla being consoled by a park ranger went viral on social media.

The photo which was taken in Virunga National Park shows the park ranger sitting next to the newly orphaned mountain gorilla on a fallen tree trunk with his hand placed on the mourning gorilla’s shoulders. The gorilla is even seen placing its hands on the ranger’s leg.

The gorilla’s mother had just lost its mother to poachers

It is one of three orphaned gorillas who lost their parents after they were killed by poachers or during attempts to illegally smuggle them out of sanctuary

Virunga National Park is currently the house for 200 mountain gorillas, about a quarter of the world’s mountain gorilla population
