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.
Female mountain gorilla “Maggie” was born on June 15, 1980, in Group 5, which was one of the gorilla groups first studied by Dr. Dian Fossey. Maggie has come to grow as an incredible leader, and Fossey Fund staff have always viewed her as a special gorilla.
We asked four Fossey Fund trackers how they prepare themselves for their daily gorilla monitoring, what they and their equipment go through over the course of a day and what it's like being with the gorillas. They have some incredible stories.
Our dedicated trackers must have adequate equipment to conduct their daily patrols. Help Us Remain Vigilant!
