Of all four gorilla subspecies, the Cross River Gorilla is the rarest: less than 250 animals still exist! They live in the border area between Nigeria and Cameroon - and the biggest threats to their survival are deforestation, road construction

Translation....

Of all four gorilla subspecies, the Cross River Gorilla is the rarest: less than 250 animals still exist! They live in the border area between Nigeria and Cameroon - and the biggest threats to their survival are deforestation, road construction and poaching. In order to maintain the habitat of the Cross River gorillas, Pro Wildlife has repeatedly supported a project in the Kagwene Conservation Area: The local population learned how to gently harvest honey from wild bees without cutting trees in the gorilla area.

But now a mega-road project on the side of Nigeria threatens the survival of the cross-river gorillas: For a 260 km long, six-lane highway, a broad swath through jungle to be hit, which would also affect the Cross River forest. There is already a road that just needs to be improved. With the new super-highway is apparently to gain access to valuable tropical timber - and poachers could then penetrate into the very last retreat areas of the animals. And not only the acutely endangered Cross River gorillas could kill the project, but also chimpanzees, drills, forest elephants u.v.m. Although the road was reorganized due to public pressure, it would still cause irresponsible damage to animals and nature.

I still remember enough German to know that is what the message says, but I ran it through a translator program just to be sure. Yep, you've already signed it. So have I. However, a lot of Care2 people haven't.
