Helping people. Saving gorillas.™
Nature's Path, an organic cereal manufacturer and supporter of the Fossey Fund, helped fund an educational radio drama about gorilla conservation that was broadcast to the community that borders Volcanoes National Park.
Traveling to see wild mountain gorillas in Volcanoes National Park is said to be a life-changing experience. It is even better when the tour is arranged by the Fossey Fund, with other exciting features such as meetings with Karisoke staff.
The Fossey Fund participated in many aspects of the annual Kwita Izina gorilla naming ceremony July 1, and 10 infants born to gorillas the Fund monitors received special names.
Grauer's gorilla Ihirwe, formerly housed in Rwanda, was recently flown to the Gorilla Rehabilitation and Conservation Education center in Congo, where she is thriving and has been renamed "Muyisa."
The Fossey Fund's Grauer's Gorilla Research Program staff have been surveying remote Grauer's gorilla habitat in Congo. They recently succeeded in obtaining unique photos of the elusive and highly endangered subspecies.
Ensure that our patrols are in the forest EVERY DAY to protect gorillas.
