What Will Happen to the Mountain Gorillas?
In 2011 research by the United Nations' Food and Agriculture Organization predicted that the vegetation in mountain gorilla habitat will be dramatically altered by climate change. Warming temperatures will push certain plant species further up the mountains leaving the gorillas, which spend most of their days foraging, with fewer food sources. The Mountain Gorilla population is already at an extraordinary 750 gorillas. At the rate of food shortage and climate change in the mountains will decrease this number at a constant decrease until there is no longer any Mountain Gorillas left. If we don't put a stop on climate change we may never see these animals again!
