There are three subspecies of gorillas: the western lowland gorilla, the eastern lowland gorilla, and the mountain gorilla. All three subspecies are endangered, two are considered critically endangered.

There are approximately 50,000 western lowland living in the wild in Central West Africa.

There are only about 2,500 eastern lowland gorillas living in the wild in the Congolese rainforest.

The mountain gorilla is on the verge of extinction with only 500 living in the wild (and none in captivity).

Real Answer200,000+Answer:There are very few gorillas left in the wild:125,000 western lowland gorillas living in the wild in West Central Africa. This gorilla is also the type most often seen in zoos.The eastern lowland gorilla population is estimated at 5,000-15,000 in the eastern Congolese rainforest around 1960 but this has fallen to 2,500 in the wild today.The mountain gorillas are the rarest only about 600 are left in the wild, about 320 in the Virunga Mountains and another 300 in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park in Uganda.This would make a total count of 150 000 to 250,000.


Mountain gorillas can be found in the rainforests in Uganda. The mountain gorilla is an endangered species and there are only around 880 left in the wild.


around 800 including the gorillas living in zoos


Lowland gorillas have a population that has stabilized after becoming dangerously low with over 108,000 left. However, Mountain gorillas are endangered with only 600 or so left.


there are only 59000 western gorills are left



there are about 300 left in captivity.


wild gorillas usually eat plants, and shoots, they also eat sometimes flowers and shoots.


Wild gorillas will eat fresh fruit, plants, herbs, tree bark, bugs, and bamboo. Gorillas that live in the western low lands will eat differently than gorillas that live in the mountains. Mountain gorillas are vegetarian and western low land gorillas are not.


2 This answer is wrong there are around 700-750 mountain gorillas left. (The silverback is the male mountain gorilla).
