This is the Cross River Gorilla, which is a close relative to the western gorilla. There are only about 200-300 left in the wild. They stand at about 4.5 to 5 feet tall and can weigh up to 400 lb. They live in the in forest habitats in the Congo Basin which in located in Central Africa. One of the main reasons they are becoming extinct is because the naive are hunting them or poaching them. This is because they live in a region that has a high population of people. Even though they can be killed in the Congo Basin they are protected in Cameroon and Nigeria. Please help save the Cross River Gorilla from complete extinction.
