Gorillas are ground dwelling, predominantly herbivorous apes that inhabit the forest of central Sub-Saharan Africa. They are charismatic, intelligent and in danger. They are our closest living relatives. They move around in family groups up to 40. A dominant male leads and holds the position for many years. They are mainly vegetarian, feeding on stems, bamboo shoots and fruits.
Gorillas share 98.3% of their DNA with humans. They weigh up to 440 lbs. and can reach a height of six feet when standing on two legs.
Learning about other species that share our beloved planet and becoming involved in the events that help and harm them should be one of our greatest aims as humanitarians.
Love and protect our Gorilla family. They love you back.
