ECO-CELL has compiled a helpful booklet to provide a broad overview of the issues surrounding e-waste and the threats to wildlife habitats and waterways. Protecting these habitats and resources is at the heart of the ECO-CELL mission.

The program includes outreach to schools, universities, businesses, and community groups to recycle electronics to support gorilla conservation efforts.

“Today’s Green Minute with Jim Parks” video (1:25) on our Zoo-based recycling program. Jim gives a nice and simple explanation of coltan mining and our efforts to save gorilla habitats by recycling cell phones and e-waste. Another great success story from an ECO-CELL Silverback partner: The Louisville Zoo.
