The Shameless star also posted a video of the couple's encounter with the energetic gorillas. "Trekked into the mountains in Rwanda with the park rangers who dedicate their lives to the protection and conservation of the mountain gorillas. Truly once in a lifetime experience learning how to respect, understand and communicate with them, continuing the work of Dian Fossey," wrote Emmy, referring to the American zoologist and mountain gorilla expert.
