Gorillas at the Myombe Preserve, Busch Gardens Tampa

Tropical vegetation, picturesque waterfalls and misty jungles transport you to Africa where silverback gorillas roam freely in a realistic habitat area. Gorillas seem to feel at home here eating plants and interacting with each other. These primates are large and powerful yet there is a human-like quality that connects us to them. These gorillas are critically endangered. Civil wars in the areas these gorillas live, habitat destruction and poaching decimate their populations. Hopefully, efforts to save these gorillas will work before we lose another species on this planet we call home.
