This is probably one of the saddest photographs that I have taken. The lowland gorilla pictured was sitting against a concrete wall in the Limbe's wildlife conservation centre. It focused on the rescue of endangered apes from capture as pets or food. I do not go to zoos, but I do support conservation projects. So came here as the ticket revenue goes to the salvation of these great animals. Still, the sadness in this gorilla's eyes was heartbreaking.

Thank you, Petra. I really felt very sorry for this one. Having seen a happy family of gorillas in the wild, and then seeing the footage of the same family being slaughtered, and then this sad one really breaks my heart. Gorillas are such beautiful animals.

Very sad is this gorilla. Really hard to stop the tears. It is difficult to understand that these beautiful, majestic animals are killed. Krys, if there's any opportunity to protest against the killing of gorillas?
