The Great Gorillas Trail

If you have visited the English Riviera or Exeter over the last month you cannot have failed to notice the giant gorilla sculptures dotted around – 30 in all! 

Paignton Zoo have come up with the idea to celebrate 90 years of conservation and to help raise awareness and money for the plight of the Cross River gorillas of Nigeria, the world’s most endangered species, to the point of near extinction.

You can print off a trail map and every time you locate one of the beautifully designed sculptures you are encouraged to register it on line by ‘checking-in’. Those that can find them all will be entered into a draw and has the chance to win a trip to Paignton Zoo to meet the real gorillas up close.
