The Eastern Lowland Gorilla

Illegal minig for tin, gold and diamond help to fuel the civil unrest in the region and attract migrants who hunt, capture and trade infant goriilas.. If we stop those illegal mining, stop people from builting farms and livestock, this will help save them and their range. And also in danger by few real predators in it's native African forests, with large cats such as leopards and the odd crocodile being the only real natural threat to the eastern lowland gorilla.

The 440 lbs Eastern Lowland Gorilla is the largest of the 4 subspecies. It is 4 to 5 and half feet and it's distinguished from othe by his stocky body, large hands and short muzzle. It lives and makes its home in lowland tropical rainforest in Congo basin.

their range is declining because people destroy their habitat to build farms and livestocks.

In the last 50 years, its range has decreased from 8,000 miles square to 4,600 square today. They were 17,000 gorillas, now scientifics estimates that the population has declined by 50% since 1990....

The alpha male eastern lowland gorilla also mates with the females in his group, producing generally single offspring, known as babies. The eastern lowland gorilla babies remain with their mother until they are a few years old and become independent.
