Once thought to be extinct, this unique subspecies of gorilla
“resurfaced” in the 1980s and is found only along the southern section
of the Nigeria-Cameroon border. Preferring habitats of low- and
mid-elevation rainforest and montane forest, the remaining Cross River
gorillas live in roughly 11 subgroups dispersed amongst the region’s
highland areas. One of four known subspecies of gorilla, Cross River
gorillas most closely resemble western lowland gorillas but differ in
the dimensions of their skulls and teeth. Researchers have also
recognized a number of socio-ecological distinctions. Like other
gorillas, the Cross River gorilla reproduces slowly, with females giving
birth only once every four to five years. Since their estimated numbers
hover at fewer than 300 individuals, this critically endangered species
depends on conservation efforts and law enforcement for its survival.
