THE ETERNITY OF REMARKABLE SPECIES
Western Lowland Gorilla

For our ‘Eternity of Remarkable Species‘ collection of bronze sculptures, we source species, such as the Western Lowland Gorilla, that are endangered or threatened by human impact. We want to put these species in a shining spotlight to raise awareness of their vulnerability, and beauty, at the same time.

Over the last few months we’ve learnt a lot about this species. We discovered that the Western Lowland Gorilla is named after the lowland swamps and forests that it inhabits in Central Africa. Once roaming free in a natural habitat, there are many threats to this species that put its existence in danger.

Among other things, they are hunted illegally for their meat and skins, captured to be sold off to zoos and the young sold as pets. This puts this species at risk.

And as our global population increases, so does our demand for crops, livestock and Timber. In return, the natural habitat of the Western Lowland Gorilla decreases, too. This has forced Gorilla’s to excavate beyond their natural habitat and raid crops, making that they are currently seen as a ‘pest’ to the landowners.

Of all Western Gorilla species, the Lowland Gorilla is the smallest of the four Gorilla subspecies. And while it might be small, its impact is tremendous.

What many of us don’t realise is that the exctinction of Gorilla’s will have disastrous effects. It can harm a complete forest ecosystem, as Gorilla’s disperse seeds. Carrying seeds from one area to another is a valuable trait that is beneficial to countless animals in the forest. This means that without gorilla’s to disperse the seeds needed, not only will the gorilla’s become extinct, but so will many other animals. This could destroy entire ecosystems in the long run.
