Summary
Tragically, most free-living gorillas -- facing habitat loss, disease, and poaching -- are now endangered. At the same time, those in zoos and sanctuaries now lead much more secure lives. Following this transition through time, Newman highlights the roles played by key individuals, both humans and gorillas
