Helping people. Saving gorillas.™
The largest group of mountain gorillas monitored by the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund is led by 37-year-old silverback Cantsbee, who has led the group since 1995 and was first seen by Dian Fossey, who gave him his name when he was born in 1978.
Since mountain gorillas are critically endangered, it is important to keep track of their numbers and determine whether the population is stable. Our staff are now participating in the second phase of the current mountain gorilla census.
We’ve recently expanded our conservation education programs to include training for secondary school teachers from 15 Rwandan schools located near the forest.
Twin gorillas are rare and their early months present a lot of challenges. But the twins born to mother Isaro in January are doing well.
Jean Pierre “Samedi” Mucyo is a prime example of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund’s capacity building, beginning as a student visiting the Fossey Fund and recently being promoted to leadership roles.
Give your Dad a meaningful gift this Father's Day.
