Helping people. Saving gorillas.™
Deogratias (Deo) Tuyisingize, the Fossey Fund’s biodiversity research program manager at our Karisoke Research Center in Rwanda, recently traveled to one of our Congo research sites to help start a new scientific project there.
One of the oldest mountain gorillas monitored by the Fossey Fund ─ dominant silverback Ugenda ─ died following an interaction with lone silverback Giraneza. Many Fossey Fund trackers at Karisoke grew to admire and love him.
During the past few months, our programs in Congo have made significant strides in collaboration and capacity building. Fossey Fund staff from our field site in Nkuba-Biruwe travelled to our other Congo field site, Kahuzi-Biega National Park.
The Fossey Fund’s environmental education activities are designed to reach students of different age groups, helping to build awareness, assist local educational institutions, and provide further training for those already working in conservation.
Fossey Fund Conservation Program Manager Escobar Binyinyi talks about the objectives, process and basics of tracking unhabituated Grauer’s gorillas at the Fossey Fund's Nkuba field site in Democratic Republic of Congo.
