About

The gorilla is the largest living ape and lowland gorillas can be found wild in Cameroon, Congo, Gabon, Angola and Equatorial Guinea.  Critically endangered, the lowland gorilla and its cousins the mountain gorilla and Cross-River gorilla are in need of protection from poachers and human disease. You can find our family group of gorillas located across the swinging bridge in Africa.
