...brought an influx of people into areas where the apes live. With this often comes a thriving bushmeat trade

BUSHMEAT??!? It's bad enough to eat gorilla, but to name it bushmeat?

Let's see:
fish eggs = caviar
snails = escargot
fried squid = calamari
raw fish = sashimi
gorilla = bushmeat

No real exotic cover-up naming on the gorilla meat is there? You know what your getting with that name.

This time when the apes take over, they will all be smoking cigars....well, except for those in a Group Buy. (Couldn't resist...sorry!)

The drop in Lowland Gorilla numbers is probably due to the unfriendly smoking environment that is happening throughout the country! :mad:

BTW - That gorilla's pic in the article kinda looked like me (if I would lose some weight!)! :D

Numbers of the eastern lowland gorilla have plummeted by more than 70% over the past decade, scientists say.
I guess with the boom over, it was bound to happen :D

"Gorillas are slow reproducers. This has to be a long-term focus," Dr Patrick Mehlman, director of Africa programmes for Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International, told BBC News Online

Oh, dear!
