Stop Funding Cuts to Programs That Save Gorillas

    1. Sponsored by

      Wildlife Conservation Society

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.

      Sign please! The U.S. Senate will cut these funds ruining what we have spent OVER 60 YEARS REBUILDING TO SAVE THE ENDANGERED MOUNTAIN GORILLA. This cut is SMALL in our federal Budget, look at what they spend on bottled water a week for congress? It's MUCH MUCH MORE, IT WOULD DISGUST YOU. PLEASE HELP SAVE THESE BEAUTIFUL GORILLAS.
