Clip | 4m 49s | Video has closed captioning.

Gorillas have 98% of the same DNA as humans; they're one of our closest creature cousins. Yet, their species' population numbers continue to drop. The effort to save them has a worldwide network, but it always starts locally. Ron Evans, Chief Curator of Primates and Operant Conditioning at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden, shares how they play a key role, both in the wild and at zoos.
