Welcome to Kilimanjaro Adventure Travel

Gorilla Help Site

Fewer than 650 mountain gorillas and 40,000 lowland gorillas are left in the world. Their existence continues to be threatened as increasing human populations continue to decrease the gorillas' habitats. Gentle and intelligent creatures, gorillas are more closely-related to humankind than many would expect. In August, the siverback you see on the picture was shot to death while he was trying to prevent the kidnapping of the baby sitting on his back. That such a futile tragedy can happen in this day and age is an outrage. Find out more about these wonderful animals, and help us ensure their survival.

This section is a public service provided by Kilimanjaro Adventure Travel to provide the public with much needed information about gorillas. If you have additional information, links, or suggestions for improvement, please send us an email. Thanks in advance!
