Evidence: The Cross River Gorilla

Part A

Read the following information about the Cross River Gorilla.

Fuente: SENA

The Cross River Gorilla is a subspecies of the western gorilla that is usually
found in montane rainforest between 1,500 and 3,500 meters and in bamboo
forest from about 2,500 to 3,000 meters. It differs from the other subspecies of
gorilla in skull and tooth dimensions. They live on a small area of high-land
forest on the border of Cameroon and Nigeria. They have been classified as a
critically endangered species. (World Wildlife Fund for Nature, s.f.)

Part B

Now, for completing the evidence you need to carry out a little research on the
web to find out the major threats for the Cross River Gorilla. With the
information obtained, write a short paragraph describing why this species is
facing extinction and the consequences of its hypothetical extinction. Make sure
you use conditionals in your text.
The main threats to Cross River Gorilla are: the decay of their lives
because the human being monopolizes the forests where they are found,
another cause that is also associated with humans is that they hunt these
animals either for the commercialization of their meat, for Put them as
hunting trophies or for some other local invention, as it is used by many
indigenous peoples of the region.

for this reason, the human being who is a living being like everyone else
on this planet is the cruellest animal of all, because it is the cause of
many species, including this one, that are in imminent danger of

Part C

Now, to complete the evidence you need to record a tape in which you describe
the actions you would execute to prevent the Cross River Gorilla’s extinction.
Use your imagination to picture several scenarios in which you could help.


 If I had a lot of money, I would donate thousands of pesos for research.

 If I lived in Cameroon or Nigeria, I would build a protection center for the
Cross River Gorilla.

My Actions

If I could, I would create a foundation where the best biologists would apply
to extend the expectation

If I had an extension of land in Cameroon, I would donate it for the

preservation of the species

If I were a politician from anywhere in the world, I would lead campaigns in

which you can help this species

If I were an inhabitant of that country, I would speak with the groups that are
invading, this one lives to be evicted
