Everyone can make a difference for apes in the wild through conservation efforts, and guests will hear firsthand how they can help. Mining for coltan, a mineral widely used in cell phones, is threatening gorillas and other forest species in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Bring old cell phone and cell phone accessories, pagers, handheld games, e-readers, and laptops to the zoo’s recycling stations.
