Gorillas in London - level 3

Gorillas in London - level 3

21-09-2011 16:00

An army of gorillas came to the River Thames! They aren’t real animals, but statues dressed up as people. There are 20 life-sized, individually decorated gorillas, including Elvis and Spiderman.

They are here to bring people’s attention to the problems of gorillas. There are very few gorillas in the wild and their number decreases every year. People destroy their homes and kill them. But not everything is lost. There are a lot of excellent projects, which can help gorillas. These statues are one of such projects. The show will finish on 22 September.
