is the total number of gorillas currently housed in institutions accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. This total includes 168 males and 185 females housed in 51 institutions. One of the SSP's® most important roles is to manage these gorillas as a population, to ensure that the population remains healthy, genetically-diverse, and self-sustaining.
