The first systematic study was not conducted until the s, when Carl Akeley of the American Museum of Natural History traveled to Africa to hunt for an animal to be shot and stuffed. On his first trip, he was accompanied by his friends Mary Bradley , a mystery writer, her husband, and their young daughter Alice, who would later write science fiction under the pseudonym James Tiptree Jr. She later became an advocate for the conservation of gorillas, and wrote several more books mainly for children. In the late s and early s, Robert Yerkes and his wife Ava helped further the study of gorillas when they sent Harold Bigham to Africa.
Yerkes also wrote a book in about the great apes. In , he conducted a systematic study of the mountain gorilla in the wild and published his work. Years later, at the behest of Louis Leakey and the National Geographic , Dian Fossey conducted a much longer and more comprehensive study of the mountain gorilla. When she published her work, many misconceptions and myths about gorillas were finally disproved, including the myth that gorillas are violent.
Western lowland gorillas G. The gorilla became the next-to-last great ape genus to have its genome sequenced. The first gorilla genome was generated with short read and Sanger sequencing using DNA from a female western lowland gorilla named Kamilah.
This gave scientists further insight into the evolution and origin of humans. Since coming to the attention of western society in the s,  gorillas have been a recurring element of many aspects of popular culture and media. For example, gorillas have featured prominently in monstrous fantasy films such as King Kong. Additionally, pulp fiction stories such as Tarzan and Conan the Barbarian have featured gorillas as physical opponents of the titular protagonists. Mountain gorillas are the most severely endangered, with an estimated population of about left in the wild and none in zoos.
In , a population of several hundred gorillas in the Odzala National Park , Republic of Congo was essentially wiped out by the Ebola virus. The researchers indicated in conjunction with commercial hunting of these apes, the virus creates "a recipe for rapid ecological extinction ". The Gorilla Agreement is the first legally binding instrument exclusively targeting gorilla conservation; it came into effect on 1 June From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
