Not surprisingly this will go on till all of a sudden no gorillas will be found. This is exactly whats happening to the lndonesian Orangutan bearing in mind that this is a protected species. Man, on judgement day better have a good excuse as to the way we have left this planet and what we have exterminated while been its gaurdian.
