Gorillas

Gorillas

The western lowland gorilla is found inhabiting the tropical jungles and forests of western and central Africa, along with lowland swamps and secondary forests. The biggest threat to the western lowland gorilla is habitat loss caused by deforestation and also being hunted by humans. Parts of the western lowland gorilla’s territory have also been taken over by civil unrest in recent years, which, along with poaching, has had a truly devastating affect on wild populations.
