Individuals embarking on trips to Africa can go and see gorillas quite easily.
For those on Kenya holidays who are interested in viewing wildlife, they can voyage to neighbouring Uganda or Rwanda to meet the primates.
David Hewitt, communications manager at the Gorilla Organization, noted people are welcome to "harness local expertise" and see what conservation projects are on hand.
He added the biggest threat facing apes is the lack of natural environment.
"Working with people to ease their reliance on this habitat is key to ensuring the long-term future of gorillas in the wild," Mr Hewitt observed.
A recent poll by Wanderlust compiled Britons' Top 100 Travel Experiences ranked meeting mountain gorillas in Rwanda or Uganda second in the list of things they most enjoyed.
For those who want to find out more about the animals, Mr Hewitt remarked taking part in an organised trip is the best option available.
