Become a Member to Protect Gorillas
Two of our longtime friends and committed supporters in California have agreed to match any new or increased Membership support this year! With your help, we could receive an extra $100,000 to sustain our field programs if we meet the $50,000 challenge.
Memberships provide vital support for on-the-ground field conservation and gorilla protection programs in Rwanda and Congo.
Annual memberships are critically important because these gifts determine the basic amount of money we know we can count on for all our conservation programs. Your membership ensures the Fossey Fund trackers and anti-poaching patrols work every day to protect gorillas.
