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.
You can take action for wild gorillas today by recycling your old cell phones at the zoo and learning the three R’s of our Gorilla Action Program.
