Helping people. Saving gorillas.™
Since mountain gorillas are critically endangered, it is important to keep track of their numbers and determine whether the population is stable. Our staff are now participating in the second phase of the current mountain gorilla census.
We’ve recently expanded our conservation education programs to include training for secondary school teachers from 15 Rwandan schools located near the forest.
Twin gorillas are rare and their early months present a lot of challenges. But the twins born to mother Isaro in January are doing well.
Jean Pierre “Samedi” Mucyo is a prime example of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund’s capacity building, beginning as a student visiting the Fossey Fund and recently being promoted to leadership roles.
Gorillas live in complex habitats that include many other important species, and the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund actively monitors and studies this biodiversity.
