Critically endangered Cross River gorillas photographedBy ATTA®
A family of critically endangered Cross River gorillas were captured on a camera trap in Nigeria’s Mbe mountains. The Wild Conservation Society (WCS), a non-governmental organisation, said the images are a ‘promising sign for the world’s rarest gorilla.’
The Cross River gorilla has a population of 250-300 individuals according to WWF. Their habitat is restricted to a highland forest area bordering on Cameroon and Nigeria.
‘Extremely shy of humans due to a long history of persecution, Cross River gorillas live in the most rugged and inaccessible parts of their range. Their presence can be detected mainly by indirect signs such as nests, dung and feeding trails.
