Gorillas Among “Most Endangered” List

Gorillas Among “Most Endangered” List

17th Oct 2012 Press Releases

The World’s 25 Most Endangered Primates List (2012–2014) was compiled by the Primate Specialist Group of IUCN’s Species Survival Commission (SSC) and the International Primatological Society (IPS), in collaboration with Conservation International (CI) and the Bristol Conservation and Science Foundation (BCSF).

The report reveals those species most in danger of becoming extinct from destruction of tropical forests, illegal wildlife trade and commercial bush meat hunting.

“Eastern Lowland gorillas may be the only great apes on that list, but they face the same pressures to survive as all apes,” said GRASP coordinator Doug Cress. “Cross River gorillas, Mountain gorillas, Sumatran orangutans and many others are on the brink.”

Great apes are mankind’s closest relatives, but the struggle to successfully co-exist is a challenge on display in “Their Fates i Ours; The Humanity of Great Apes,” a photo exhibition presented by the Great Apes Survival Partnership (GRASP) from October 3-21 at the Alliance Francaise in Nairobi.

The exhibition features intimate portraits of gorillas, chimpanzees and gorillas shot by GRASP manager Dr. Johannes Refisch, during his travels through Africa and Asia.

“Their Fate is Ours” The Humanity of Great Apes” is presented in association with Volcanoes Safaris.
