Gorillas are gentle giants. Like us, they play, hug, and laugh. But they’re endangered and under assault.
These gentle giants are facing a three-fold struggle for existence: they are killed for their meat; their habitats are destroyed by logging, mining, agriculture, and other invasive activities; and infectious diseases ravage their families.
And if we don’t act now, they’ll soon have another threat. Federal lawmakers are planning to cut vital funding for international conservation programs that save gorillas’ lives and protect their habitats.
The tragedy is that these cuts are too small to make a difference in the federal budget, but large enough to completely cripple efforts to save gorillas.
Send a letter to your members of Congress right now and urge them to stand up for Africa’s gorillas.
