Adopt a gorilla
The Fossey Fund’s symbolic gorilla adoption program brings you into the life of a gorilla, while also providing support for their daily protection. Each day our brave trackers locate the gorilla groups we monitor and make sure every individual is safe. This daily protection has led to an increase in the mountain gorilla population. They are the only ape whose numbers are not declining!
When you symbolically adopt through the Fossey Fund, you will learn all about your adoptee’s life and family, and become a crucial part of their future. Choose your new family member below.
Adoptions also make special and meaningful gifts for your family, friends or colleagues, or for special occasions.
When you adopt a gorilla, you or your gift recipient will receive (via email):
- A ready-to-display digital adoption certificate with a full-color photo of your new gorilla family member.
- A profile with beautiful images of your gorilla along with detailed information from the field and twice-yearly updates.
- A digital subscription to the Gorilla Journal, the Fossey Fund’s quarterly newsletter.
- A special video and downloadable image of your new gorilla family member.
