G is for Gorilla
Photo by Christoph Würbel on Flikr.
There are 100,000 western lowland gorillas left in the wild – less than the population of Crawley, West Sussex.
There are 17,000 eastern lowland gorillas left in the world – the same population as Ripley, the fourth smallest city in the UK.
There are 880 mountain gorillas left in the world – the same population as a small comprehensive school.
There are 250-300 cross river gorillas left in the world – I don’t need to tell you how few that is.
Please use FSC wood for all wood needs, and check for a label on anything you buy.
