Gorillas on the Line
Did you know that some cell phone parts use coltan? Coltan is an ore mined in the Democratic Republic of Congo - where gorillas live.
The deforestation and mining associated with coltan production has impacted and displaced gorillas, moving them closer to extinction.
Recycling and extending the life of electronic devices reduces the demand for coltan mining.
When we lessen the demand for coltan, we are helping to protect gorillas in the wild!
Gorillas are on the line - will you help us answer the call?
