Eureka! Hundreds of Thousands of Gorillas Found in Forest Based on estimates made in the 1980's, scientists have believed that the lowland gorillas of Western Africa were facing extinction. The population was thought to be less than 100,000, severely threatened by disease and hunting. But more than 125,000 have been found alive and well in a remote, inaccessible region of the Republic of Congo called "the Green Abyss." Conservation Emma Stokes of the World Conservation Society calls the discovery "the mother lode of gorillas."
