Things people like You and I can do:

         Just like it is a sin to kill another man, slaying a majestic creature like the mountain gorilla is no different.  If murdering a man gives one life in prison, so should exterminating a mountain gorilla.  They are no different  from any other living creature that walks this earth.  It is an animal with feelings and many similar characteristcs that we have, and at times it acts more civilized than we do.  We need to tell governments to enforce stricter laws,  provide society with public service announcements to aware the general public of the cruelty that many endangered species suffer, including the mounatain gorillas.  A bigger budget would help provide more wildlife refuges to keep these gorillas out of harm's way and protecting its environment would help conserve their habitat and privacy.
