"The ultimate success of wildlife tourism depends on many factors, the
most important of which is the protection of enough suitable habitat.
And this is where the issue lies. All gorillas are endangered, and
lowland gorillas in particular are declining as a result of war,
hunting, ebola, deforestation and habitat fragmentation."
Conservation will be a massive challenge as we try to preserve what we
can from the great extinction. And it won't just be a matter of losing
charismatic megafauna to look at for entertainment and inspiration -
ecosystem damage and diversity loss will affect our food sources as well.
