The Fossey Fund was started by one woman who dared to make a difference, and her legacy is an enduring and powerful reminder that one person’s actions truly can change the world!
Since Dian originally established the Karisoke Research Center high in the Virunga mountains, we have worked tirelessly to continue her work. Our mission expanded over those 50-plus years, and it has been our dream over the last two decades to build a permanent home – a purpose-built facility that would enable us to elevate our protection and science efforts, expand our educational programming, and connect more closely with the people who live in the local community or are visiting the region.
