Congo Basin gorillas facing extinction

Population is rapidly falling in the Greater Congo Basin, with many being killed or sold as pets.

    The future of Africa's Greater Congo Basin Gorillas is under threat.

    According to a UN report, the animals could disappear by the mid-2020's, with many caught and sold as exotic pets, and others killed and sold as "bush meat".
