Volcanoes National Park covers approximately 125 km² of rainforests and is home to the Rwandan mountain gorillas. Volcanoes National Park (PNV) became famous through the scientific studies of Dian Fossey, who was the first scientist to meticulously research the behavior of mountain gorillas.
The Virunga Volcano Region (VVR) is ecologically a single entity, but politically divided into three national parks: Mgahinga Gorilla National Park in Uganda, Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda, and Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Another gorilla population lives in the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park (BINP) in Uganda in an area of about 330km².
