Published for the first time on August21st2012, Gorillas Land is a fan website created to share news, as its most, about gorillas kept under human care. Over the years, our platform was improved and developed by sharing content of all kind regarding this species and their surroundings, till Gorillas Land has become a worldwide level reference as a source. Nowadays, apart from sharing the kind of content we started with, we promote conservation and education about this critically endangered species through our website and social networks, trying to emphasize the importance to make our biggest efforts to protect wildlife.
Gorillas Land is a very extensive website with a lot of information, so there might be occasional delays regarding the latest updates. The sources used to build our database of gorillas under human care are mainly Wikipedia (for the zoo pages), the Official Western Lowland Gorilla Studbook and theUnofficial Studbookby James Richard Davis.In order to keep the website updated, we receive emails from zoo regulars and keepers, and we use the internet and social media to look for news. Gorillas Land encourages all of you tocontact usif you see any mistakes, if you want to share any updates with us or if you want to send us pictures of both gorillas and their habitats.
Gorillas Land is not an official source of information, neither is it linked in any way or manner to any of the rescue centers, NGOs or zoological institutions mentioned on the web.
