The Eastern lowland gorilla, the world's greatest ape, has suffered a "catastrophic decline" in the restive Democratic Republic of Congo, blamed on mining for minerals used in mobile phones.

I thought I’d just share with you my AP Environment Science Grassland Biome Pamphlet. I thought I did a pretty awesome job with the organization and presentation. Much to my surprise, I found out I actually received an A in it so that’s pretty bomb. Let’s also applaud (or not if you dont want to) my project buddy and good friend Joey (@cuntology) for retrieving the biome info.  You may critique and despise it or love and admire it, that’s cool man whatevers I just wanted to share it with all of you… and also because it’s my blog and I post whatever I want lol
