Born Free Foundation - Keep Wildlife in the Wild


One of our closest relatives, the gorilla is the biggest of the great apes.  Gorillas might be powerful, but they are intelligent, peaceful vegetarians, who live in close-knit family groups.  But gorillas are under threat.  Their forest homes are destroyed by logging companies, which open up habitats to poachers.  Poachers kill gorillas for ‘bushmeat’ or tourist ‘curios’ and sell their infants as pets.
