Wildlife Conservation: Saving The African Drill
The drill is a very rare primate found in Nigeria and Cameroon in Africa. It's survival is in jeopardy due to habitat destruction, poaching, corruption and other challenges. Two Portland natives, Liza Gadsby and Peter Jenkins, are the first to do research on drills, and have established Pandrillus, a program for breeding and conservation.
