Western lowland gorilla

Gorilla gorilla gorilla

Notes:

They are hunted for their meat to be sold in markets and as pets. Their habitat is also being destroyed through deforestation. The main reason for population decline in some areas is due to human viruses, especially ebola, being transmitted from local villages.
