A video of a silverback gorillas crossing a road in the Republic of Congo has gone viral on social media platforms. The video shows the massive primate calmly walking across a road in front of a vehicle, which had to stop to allow the gorilla to pass safely.
The footage was captured by a wildlife conservation organization known as the Gorilla Rehabilitation and Conservation Education (GRACE) center. The organization, which is based in the Congo, works to rehabilitate and conserve endangered gorillas.
The video has garnered a lot of attention on social media, with many users expressing their awe and amazement at the sight of the gorilla. It has also sparked a conversation about the importance of preserving endangered species and their habitats.
The silverback gorilla is a critically endangered species, with only an estimated 1,000 individuals left in the wild. Their habitat is being destroyed by deforestation, mining, and other human activities. This, coupled with poaching and hunting for bushmeat, has made the survival of the species very difficult.
