YEAR OF THE GORILLA FACT FILE

•The Mountain Gorillas found in Uganda are one of four subspecies of Gorilla: Mountain Gorilla, Eastern Lowland Gorilla, Western Lowland Gorilla & the Cross River Gorilla.
•The Mountain Gorilla is listed as Critically Endangered on the IUCN Red List of Endangered Species (IUCN 2008, CRC1).
•Mountain Gorillas face an extremely high risk of extinction in the wild due to their very small population level, continued habitat loss, poaching, human disease and war.
