Helping people. Saving gorillas.™
Every day, Karisoke™ Research Center staff protect and study approximately 120 mountain gorillas, in Rwanda's Volcanoes National Park. Most are descended from the same gorillas Dian Fossey studied until her death in 1985.
Learn more about some individual gorillas, the groups they live in, and how we study them.
Ensure that our patrols are in the forest EVERY DAY to protect gorillas.
Have a life-changing experience!
