Sign the Petition to

U.S. Senate and Congress

The Eastern Gorilla, one of our closest relatives and the largest primate on earth, was recently placed on the "critically endangered" list. This species desperately needs immediate attention, before it is too late. The African counties that are home to the Eastern Gorilla, like the Democratic Republic of Congo, cannot curb the illegal hunting and habitat destruction alone.

It's time to double down on gorilla protection just like the U.S. has done for the protection of the world's elephants.

We're asking you to immediately increase funding to the endangered species projects that protect the Eastern Gorilla and begin to better assist African countries that are battling to end illegal hunting and habitat destruction of the Eastern Gorilla.

Thank you.

Signed,

Stop Animal Cruelty

The Eastern Gorilla, the world's largest primate, is critically endangered. The U.S. government needs to now step up their commitment to help protect this species like it has stepped up for the world's elephants. Countries that are home to the Eastern Gorilla, like the Democratic Republic of Congo, cannot do this alone. This species survival depends on the U.S. helping these countries protect the Eastern Gorilla and its habitat.
