Dozens of people in gorilla costumes on Saturday jogged through London for The Great Gorilla Run 2017.

The annual 8-kilometre fun run is organised by the Gorilla Organisation to raise awareness and funds to help protect wild gorillas.

Now in its 15th year, the event has raised over 2-million pounds for gorilla conservation, according to the Gorilla Organisation.

There are fewer than 900 mountain gorillas living in the wild.
