Western Lowland Gorilla | Critically Endangered
Our primate cousins are being driven out of their homes by large scale deforestation and have gone from vulnerable to critically endangered in the past 34 years. Purchase a limited-edition pass and take action with us to help protect the western lowland gorilla.
As western lowland gorillas, we’re renowned for our intelligence and social behavior. Although our troops require large swaths of rainforest across equatorial Africa, we've watched logging slowly decimate our habitat. Without sufficient land, our numbers have quickly dwindled. Because when trees fall, so does our species. You can aid our survival by looking for the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) logo, which signals a positive purchase for the planet, on wood and paper products.
The Price of Extinction takes into account how long each species has been at risk and how much it would cost to save them. The higher the price, the higher their risk.
Each Price of Extinction is represented by a collectible, limited-edition pass that helps to take away their threat. So, buy a pass, hear their plea, and take action with us to protect these critical species.
