Gorilla Facts

Dian Fossey observes DigitThe gorillas of Africa can teach us a lot - and we have learned a lot about them since Dian Fossey began her research.

Today the Karisoke™ Research Center studies approximately 120 individual mountain gorillas every day. Congolese scientists have begun research on the lesser-known Grauer's gorilla. Find out more about gorillas, so similar to us yet so different.

Give to Save Gorillas

Support conservation and protection of BOTH Grauer's and mountain gorillas with your monthly contribution.

Ensure that our patrols are in the forest EVERY DAY to protect gorillas.
