Watch 98.6% Human, A Short Film About The Connection Between Humans and Mountain Gorillas

Explore went on a philanthropic fact-finding mission to Rwanda to discover that humans and mountain gorillas share 98.6% of their genetic makeup. So many similarities exist, from their eyesight to their sense of smell. By observing and interacting with the gorillas, you are able to see that they really¬†are gentle giants, and indeed very close to humans in their behaviors and interactions with one another. Craig Sholley of AWF teaches us about his organization’s efforts to preserve gorillas in Rwanda.
