- The Western lowland gorilla is generally calm and non-aggressive until they are disturbed
- they don't display territorial behavior
How do the adaptations have a positive effect?
- the way their bodies are formed make it easy for them to climb well and give them the ability to build their nests
What i would do to help the Western Lowland gorillas to thrive is to create a protective area for them that way poachers don't have the ability to capture them and eliminate habitat destruction that occurs through logging, mining and slash and burn agriculture.
