Gorillas In Central Africa Face Extinction

In the next 10-15 years, eastern lowland gorillas in Central Africa could follow the plight of the Dodo bird and countless other species into extinction.

Due to habitat loss, poaching and disease these Congo Basin gorillas are running out of time.  Only 5,000 eastern lowland gorillas are left.  This represents an alarming 70% decline in about 10 years.

Makes the heart sad 😦
