A baby Mountain Gorilla is cradled in the arms of her mother, while her father, a large Silverback Gorilla watches from behind. Created to help raise awareness about the serious plight of the Virunga Mountain Gorillas. These creatures are severely endangered and only 650 or so remain alive in the world today. Most die due to illegal poaching, encroachment onto rainforest habitats by charcoal farmers who burn the rainforest trees down and many die due to vicious acts by warring soldiers fighting between Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
All of my Mountain Gorilla artwork is dedicated to raising donations from sales to directly benefit the caring organization Wildlife Direct at wildlifedirect.org.
Thank you for helping me to help them. ~ Skye
