A Silverback gorilla is the mature, experienced male leader of a group of mountain gorillas in the wild. Named for the Silver saddles across his back, the Silverback is responsible for the safety of his group. A group of gorillas, also called a "troop, " can contain from 5 to 30 gorillas.The Silverback decides where the troop travels, where it forages for food, where it will rest and where it will sleep at night. The fact that there are roughly 700 Silverbacks left in existence today reflects what humans have done to the population. When we continually cut down trees where gorillas live, we are slowly destroying their habitat, which is one of the reasons why they have become an endangered animal. Poachers who capture and kill these animals to make a profit are also contributing to their decline.
