Human Viruses Kill Apes by Ashley Grace I am a graduate student at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor. Studying science has been my focus since I was 10 years of age. All of my art is based around science. Visit AshleyGrace.com for more information.
Apes are killed year round by human viruses. One statistic stated that a few years ago one third of apes were killed by Ebola alone. These viruses are contracted and spread by humans during deforestation, poaching and tourism.
