World Gorilla Day
World Gorilla Day is dedicated to celebrating one of our closest primate relatives while raising awareness about the threats they face. With their habitats shrinking due to deforestation, and populations dwindling due to poaching and disease, gorillas are critically endangered. This day encourages people to learn about these fascinating creatures, support conservation efforts to protect them, and contribute towards habitat preservation initiatives. It underscores the urgent need for global cooperation in conserving gorillas and their habitats.
