They are majestic. Sensitive and perceptive. Just one glimpse into the soulful eyes of a mountain gorilla, and a lifetime of misconceptions vanishes into the African wind. And even though they weigh up to 450 pounds, they are being driven out of the rain forests of Central Africa because of poaching and human encroachment into their natural habitat. They are now in danger of extinction, with just 650 left in the world. ALMOST Today, with the help of The Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International, you can adopt a mountain gorilla. And when you adopt, you'll receive a photo of your gorilla with background information, including personality traits and a family tree. It's a contribution you'll feel good about. Because unless we help the mountain gorillas soon, they'll be TheDianFossey Gorilla Fund out ofAfrica...for eternity.
