The gorillas of Rio Muni have been very heavily exploited in order to obtain specimens for zoological parks and research centres. During 30 months (September 1966 to February 1969) 34 young gorillas were shown to have been captured in Rio Muni: This figure was increased by 29 which were killed in the process of capturing the young; thus 63 were verified as having been eliminated from the wild during that time.
