Helping people. Saving gorillas.™
Read the latest news about gorillas in Africa, Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund events, and saving endangered gorillas in Rwanda and Congo. Our staff in the field report regularly on what’s happening with the gorillas we protect, and give updates on our people programs.
The Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund is delighted to announce that it will participate in the 2015 census of the Virunga mountain gorillas, a large collaborative project that is now underway. This effort will involve counting all the mountain gorillas in Africa’s Virunga massif.
When 24-year-old dominant silverback Kirahure, who was the leader of Kuryama’s group, was wounded this summer and later disappeared and died, his group was fortunate to have another silverback available to take over leadership: 22-year-old Vuba.
Ensure that our patrols are in the forest EVERY DAY to protect gorillas.
