You can now be friends with a rare Ugandan mountain gorilla on Facebook, or follow one on Twitter, or even follow one’s life through geo-tracking and GPS. It’s a strategy of tourism marketing and conservation at once. You will get information about new births and deaths in the family you’re paying to follow. In Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, where only 740 such gorillas are left, there will be cameras that will help you follow your gorilla live. It’s one of the most endangered species on the planet and there are only another 700-odd left in Rwanda and Congo. Interested? Log on
