Western Lowland Gorilla

Gorilla gorilla gorilla

Status: Critically Endangered

Population: Unknown

Living in some of the most dense and remote rainforests in Africa, large numbers of these gorillas died from the deadly Ebola virus. They are also killed for bushmeat or during the capture of their babies for pets. Populations still exist in isolated parts of the Republic of Congo. Pictured is a gorilla at the Prague zoo.
