The powerful mountain gorilla is now critically endangered with only around 880 left in the wild.

They’re found in high-altitude montain and bamboo forests – sometimes at elevations of 4,000m – where they mainly eat leaves, shoots and stems. To coincide with World Gorilla Day, we’d like to invite you to get to know more about this critically endangered species and how they desperately need your help. We've got four simple - and fun - ways to show your support this #WorldGorillaDay; from learning more about this incredible species, to crafting a colourful gorilla mask or purchasing one of our striking gorilla badges!
