The future for gorillas in Africa is getting bleaker, according to a UNEP-Great Apes Survival Partnership (GRASP) report that assessed the econimic and environmental pressures threatening the species’ survival. Last Stand of the Gorilla, which was funded by France, UNEP/UNESCO and GRASP as a Contribution to the UNEP/CMS Year of the Gorilla campaign, suggests that accelerating impacts from poaching to illegal logging are hitting great ape populations and habitats faster than previously supposed.
