The Gorilla are divided into 2 species, the western and eastern gorilla. These two species have their own subspecies of which all are critically endangered. One of these subspecies are known to have only a few hundred of them left which creates a task for conservationists to protect them and keep them alive. Many people have dedicated their lives to protecting the poached and imposed Gorilla. Love for protecting this human-like primate has brought people all over the world to visit them and work alongside locals to enlarge their population status. Protection funds and conservation teams survive on donations and tourist visits which is why I am planning to do both. With hoping to visit Africa next year, I will be donating $1000 of the money received from the buyer of this piece to The Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund. This conservation team work in Rwanda and Democratic Republic of Congo doing scientific research, education and physical movements in the efforts to help species of Gorilla to survive.
This piece is for sale so contact me if interested.
