Calgary Zoo - Animals - Gorillas
Conservation

Gorilla Action Program

Did you know that some cell phone parts use coltan, an ore mined in the Democratic Republic of Congo, where gorillas live? This mining contributes to habitat loss and the endangerment of gorillas. When we reduce, reuse, THEN recycle our electronic devices we lessen the demand for coltan and help protect gorillas in the wild.
