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.
Ellen DeGeneres and the “Rock” talk gorillas!
Gorillas are a hot topic among celebrities lately, especially since the Ellen DeGeneres gift to build a new campus for the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund in Rwanda. During a recent visit to her show by Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson, the talk was all about gorillas, including silverback Iyambere, who is protected by the Fossey Fund’s trackers every day in Rwanda. Johnson actually “adopted” Iyambere, a symbolic way to help support our daily gorilla protection in the wild. You can be like the Rock and adopt Iyambere or another gorilla for Mother’s Day!
