How much space does a Gorilla group need?

Gorillas don’t have discrete territories and instead they roam in home ranges. When the sources of food are sparse, the ranges between groups also become larger and when there is abundance of food the distance between home ranges become shorter. This comes with the number of individuals a given group has in that the more members a group consists the further the group will roam. The spaces between these gorillas’ homes can range up 4-8km however in less fertile/productive areas the groups go up to 30km and sometimes different groups overlap.
