Gorillas share 98% of their DNA with humans, the laugh, they get sad, jealous, angry and are smart enough to use tools. I don't know about you but when I look into their eyes (albeit in photographs, I am not lucky enough to have seen any in person) I get a funny feeling, almost as if I'm looking into the soul of a wise grandparent. In a way I can't actually believe that they are real. I also can't believe that in a few generations they are in serious danger of being all but completely wiped out in the wild, overwhelmingly due to the activities of their human grandchildren.
Fortunately there are many organisations trying to find ways to tackle this other threats such as habitat loss and the spread of disease.
https://www.gorillas.org/ supports grassroots organizations to keep Gorillas safe from poaching and habitat loss. See if you can help!
