Summary Humans have always regarded gorillas with conflicting emotions. As evidenced by the intense controversy sparked by the killing of Harambe at the Cincinnati Zoo, the treatment of gorillas is intertwined with how humans perceive them. This book sheds light on the truth about mountain gorillas and the consequences that could result from their extinction. Offering readers an unbiased look at the animal, the text covers the challenges that gorillas face in the wild and the actions that must be taken to ensure their survival. The dynamic text is augmented by colorful photographs, a handy timeline, and sidebars.
