The Great GORILLA Is Our Animal Of The Week!
With endangered animals STILL being poached around the world, why don’t we hear more about it? These heartbreaking poaching statistics are caused by the growing appetite for meat. WildAid completed a study finding the majority of poaching was for bushmeat production at fourty per cent! Which is worrying considering 75% of all emerging infectious diseases in the last decade have originated from animals… With the trafficking business being worth 5-23 billion, how do you think we should crack down on poachers?
This week, we’re taking a look at one of the big 5! The gorilla! This giant ape shares 98% of its DNA with us humans. They also eat veggies for the most part… we’re talking 30kg a DAY! Which is why when we found out they weight around 200kg, we asked no further questions!
