Helping

Saving

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 need human help to survive the future. Today, the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund is dedicated to continuing Dian Fossey’s work to protect gorillas while helping and educating the people who live near them.

Dian Fossey:

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.

Mpanuru, who recently was named in #kwitaizina, was enjoying time being babysat by 4 year old Umusanuro… that is until mom Ikaze came to pick up the baby! 😂 They say it takes a village to raise a child and that is true for gorilla infants as well! #gorillas #conservation #infant #nature
