Will people buy Gorilla meat? Gorilla meat may taste bad or people may not be willing to buy it.
There is merit to what you are saying. The American Bison was a threatened species, until people successfully marketed Bison as a low cholesterol alternative to Beef. Bison happens to be delicious.
There may be other ways of making money off Gorillas without selling their meat. For example people may profit off Gorillas via Gorilla tourism. Tourists may be willing to spend money on hotels, transportation, food, souvenirs, and other goods and services in order to get a chance to encounter Gorillas (hopefully from a safe distance) in the wild.
