8. Mountain Gorilla
It is yet another animal that is almost becoming extinct. They are found particularly in Congo, Uganda, and Rwanda. It is the largest and greatest gorillas. They have featured in several movies such as Tarzan and King Kong. According to WWF, mountain gorillas are affected by fragmentation, human-wildlife conflict, and habitat. Therefore it is very crucial for us to protect them before they become completely extinct. Mountain gorillas die due to habitat loss, human diseases and also illegal poaching. WWF is working closely with the governments in all parts the Congo Basin, international institutions, and timber companies to encourage talks and the use of excellent environmental practices in the tree industry.
