Artist's Description

Apenheul, Holland.

Found in the vast lowland forests of central Africa, the western lowland gorilla is by far the most widespread and numerous of all gorillas. However, this subspecies of western gorilla is coming under threat as timber companies move into the region. And as forests are opened up by the timber companies, hunters move in. The commercial trade in bushmeat is now an added threat to these gorillas and other forest fauna. Ebola hemorrhagic fever has also emerged as a new threat (WWF, 2008)
