Saving the Mountain Gorillas


At St Mary’s, Unit 3 Environmental Studies students are collecting mobile phones, mobile batteries and accessories. If you have any lying around the house, please send them to school with your child to place in the box in the St Mary’s Library foyer.

The metals (especially Coltan) and recyclable parts are sold and the profits go to the Mountain Gorilla conservation program in The Congo. The Coltan in the phones is mined there which has led to the decline of the gorillas.
