Urgent appeal: Help us build a safe haven for orphaned western lowland gorillas

Demand for bushmeat is huge, with over 1 million tonnes taken from Central Africa each year – and much comes from the Critically Endangered Western lowland gorillas. Gorilla meat fetches a high price in Cameroon despite international and national laws prohibiting the slaughter of apes. Often after witnessing poachers kill their mother – infants are stolen and sold in the international pet trade.

Nestled in Mefou National Park is a safe refuge for some of these many gorilla orphans, providing a home for them to recover and form new social groups with other gorillas who have been through a similar ordeal.

The newly formed families desperately need more safe and secure homes in the forest sanctuary, and you can help!

Bristol Zoological Society will be at the forest sanctuary in Mefou National Park in the next two weeks. To start building the new homes £10,000 is urgently needed.

You can make this happen by donating today.
