This year’s Cars 4 Conservation will be benefitting Western Lowland Gorillas. Gorillas have been in steep decline over the past few decades. Habitat destruction, human encroachment and poaching for bushmeat have decimated their numbers to only a few hundred thousand. From 2005 to 2013 their numbers declined almost 19% from previous numbers. Here at Zoo Miami we have 2 male silverback Western Lowland Gorillas named Shango and Barney.

Pre- Registration* $30 ($40 day of show)
