They're Calling On You
Taronga and Taronga Western Plains Zoos are calling on you to recycle your old mobile phone to help save one of our closest living relatives. Minerals and ores such as coltan are mined out of gorilla habitat and used in the creation of mobile phones. This mining is accelerating the decline in gorilla numbers and at least 10 other African primate species.
By simply recycling an old mobile phone, the pressure on gorilla habitat is reduced and money raised from refurbished handsets supports gorilla conservation in central Africa.
