Helping people. Saving gorillas.™
The orphan gorillas at the Gorilla Rehabilitation and Conservation Education center in the Congo will soon have much more space for learning to survive in the wild. The electric "Freedom Fence" is in final stages of construction.
Kuryama's group of mountain gorillas, one of the longest-observed among those monitored by the Dian Fossey Fund, has not been seen for over three months, which is worrisome because of the danger from poachers and disease.
Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund trackers found dominant silverback Rano dead on July 28. He was 21 years old and the son of legendary silverback Titus. Surviving group members include three young silverbacks, but it remains to be seen who will lead the group.
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.
Ensure that our patrols are in the forest EVERY DAY to protect gorillas.
