a mother’s love. gorilla photos by kelly brown (1,6), michael nichols (2), robin utrecht (3,5), tony gnau lincoln park zoo (7), the brownsville herald (8), ariel schalit (10), and andy rouse (9)

with the exception of those by rouse and nichols, the photos were taken at zoos, and while zoos are never the ideal for wild animals that belong in the wild, gorilla populations are now so low that birthing programs are needed to ensure the continued requisite genetic diversity of the species. there are less than 800 mountain gorillas left and about 2500 eastern lowland gorillas left.
