    Project S.O.S Gorilla: S.O.S Gorilla - The Gorilla support internet project

    S.O.S Gorilla is a project created to raise funds to help the endangered mountain gorillas, which has received the official support from the Barcelona Zoo, EEP Gorillas, and the ONU Year Of The Gorilla 2009.

    It works in an easy and nice way: Contributors can help the gorillas buying pieces of a gorilla mother & daughter picture, which will be gradually discovered. This areas will show the donnor information, such as web site or name.

    All the funds collected will got to the german association Berggorilla & Regenwald Direkthilfe, working since 1984 to help this endangered animals. If the picture is finally completely sold, it'll be raised the amount of 480.000 € (1€/pixel).
