Evidence: The Cross River Gorilla

Part A

Read the following information about the Cross River Gorilla.

Fuente: SENA

The Cross River Gorilla is a subspecies of the western gorilla that is usually
found in montane rainforest between 1,500 and 3,500 meters and in bamboo
forest from about 2,500 to 3,000 meters. It differs from the other subspecies of
gorilla in skull and tooth dimensions. They live on a small area of high-land
forest on the border of Cameroon and Nigeria. They have been classified as a
critically endangered species. (World Wildlife Fund for Nature, s.f.)

Part B

Now, for completing the evidence you need to carry out a little research on the
web to find out the major threats for the Cross River Gorilla. With the
information obtained, write a short paragraph describing why this species is
facing extinction and the consequences of its hypothetical extinction. Make sure
you use conditionals in your text.
The main threats to the Cross river Gorilla are, in the illegal trade of
animals, deforestation and diseases. Over 70% of the forest was
allocated to the timber industry. In addition the areas where few of the
gorillas are left are not monitored or conserved. Although they have
implemented ecotourism and education, they have not been able to stop
this threat and this is getting worse. Gorillas are hunted to eat their meat.

Part C

Now, to complete the evidence you need to record a tape in which you describe
the actions you would execute to prevent the Cross River Gorillas extinction.
Use your imagination to picture several scenarios in which you could help.

If I had a lot of money, I would donate thousands of pesos for research.


If I lived in Cameroon or Nigeria, I would build a protection center for the
Cross River Gorilla.
