North Carolina Zoo and Gorilla Conservation
When a human gets an infection, there is no doctor or medical antibiotics available in the Jungle. For humans, it is a trip to the doctor and take the medication for a few days and within a short time the infection will be under control and you feel better.
Here we see a Zoo in North Carolina who are going to study why Gorillas get infections and how to assist.
ASHEBORO, N.C. — The North Carolina Zoo’s conservation program has received a $51,460 federal grant to help conserve gorillas in the wild.The zoo said in a statement Friday that the money from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will go toward researching Cross River gorillas, the most endangered type of gorillas in the world.A team of scientists and field biologists will work to determine patterns that cause parasite infections in the gorillas; determine how diseases found in humans can impact gorillas; establish health and disease threat monitoring protocols.
