The Gorilla Species Survival Plan®

About the SSP

The Gorilla Species Survival Plan (SSP) serves 51 zoos across the United States to help guide the management of the gorilla population. Although our primary role is in population management, we are ultimately interested in the health and well-being of ALL gorillas, including those living outside accredited zoos and in the wild. The Gorilla SSP is administered under the Ape Taxon Advisory Group (TAG).
