The Cross River Gorilla, with fewer than 300 individuals estimated to exist in the wild, is the most endangered of the gorilla subspecies. It is listed by the IUCN as Critically Endangered. This is the highest ranking for species that remain in the wild, and means the Cross River gorilla is at risk of extinction.
