What are the main threats to mountain gorillas?

| 23/01/20

Although poaching remains a serious issue, the greatest threats to mountain gorillas are habitat loss and disease (see Threats).

The International Gorilla Conservation Programme (IGCP) currently consists of Conservation International, Fauna & Flora International and the World Wide Fund for Nature. We recognise that the earth's survival is dependent on humanity's ability to maintain a healthy and balanced environment that includes all species of wildlife.
