What do you know about where wild gorillas live?

Their habitat is being destroyed by coltan mining- the same substance used in cell phones. Taking action to recycle old cell phones can make a difference in conserving the environment that wild apes call home!

Make your next visit one that helps gorillas- recycle your phones here at the zoo in the TransAlta Rainforest building ♥
