Helping people. Saving gorillas.™
We are dedicated to gorilla conservation through daily protection, anti-poaching, research, education and helping communities.
Protecting and studying gorillas for more than 45 years, even during the most difficult times, is what it takes to save a species.
A healthy ecosystem benefits everyone. Our health, education and economic programs improve the chances of gorillas surviving.
We are helping to create a vast rainforest wildlife corridor in eastern Congo, home to both mountain and Grauer's gorillas.
Fewer than 900 mountain gorillas remain. Their habitats are severely threatened. We are on the ground every day protecting them.
