He pointed out that this type of gorilla faces the risk of extinction because of the infringement of its living places and reducing the number of forests, but organizations are paying huge efforts to protect them. This year’s competition saw 19 categories including three new groups: oceans, wetlands and natural artistry. (KUNA)
