Vanishing Treasures programme
Globally, around one million plant and animal species are now threatened with extinction...
This brief is one of three in a series that also includes the snow leopard and Royal Bengal tiger, produced under the Vanishing Treasures programme. Its goal is to highlight how climate change is – and will be – impacting the conservation of the mountain gorilla.
The brief examines how climate change has multiple, and often interacting, impacts on the mountain gorilla – be it on its physiology, on the ecosystems on which it depends, or on the behaviour of humans living in its surroundings – with important feedback loops that directly affect the conservation of this magnificent animal.
