Silverback gorillas were not even known to exist until 1902. Today, their habitat is being destroyed when people use the land for farming and the trees for fuel. Gorillas are also killed by poachers and sometimes get caught in poacher’s snares meant for other animals. The Silverback Gorilla is the most endangered species of Gorilla. Approximately 650 silver back gorillas exist in the world.
