Photographer's Note

This a female Silver back gorilla from the Limbe Wildlife Center. The guide told me she was 14 years old and weighted 65kg. The dominant male of the group is 115kg.

The LWC was created in 1993 and its purpose is to protect gorillas and different kind of monkeys (like Drillus) threaten by wildmeat trade in different areas of Cameroon. It also promotes educational values to the pupils from different schools visiting the center on saturday afternoon so that they understand how critical it is to protect those endangered species and to stop encouraging eating that kind of meat.

One can discover 15 different species all originated from Cameroon. The center is skilled enough today to get births from different endangered species.
