Gorillas are beautiful, resilient animals. But poaching and habitat destruction have pushed their populations to the brink of extinction in recent decades.
Our brave founder, Dian Fossey, knew that gorillas would need our help to survive. Today, the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund is dedicated to continuing and expanding Dian’s work. We protect gorillas and their forests every day, while also helping the people who live near them. Click here to give today.
As the Fossey Fund continues to implement ways to reduce our carbon footprint and ensure donations are being directed to our mission and providing the greatest impact, we have made the necessary decision to discontinue the production and distribution of the annual calendar. We hope you will continue to enjoy seeing and learning more about the gorillas and our community work via our website, or Facebook, Twitter and Instagram posts. Thank you.
A Conservation Pioneer
Dian Fossey’s work to study and protect the lives of the wild gorillas in Rwanda touched the hearts of people around the world. Her focus, courage and passion have inspired many conservationists who have followed since. And her legacy lives on today, in the gorilla protection, science, education and people programs of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund.
