CEO Dr. Stoinski tweets from the field
Dr. Tara Stoinski, Fossey Fund president and CEO/chief scientist, has been tweeting from the field on her current trip to our Karisoke Research Center in Rwanda. To keep up, follow us on Twitter at this link: http://twitter.com/SavingGorillas
This week Dr. Stoinski took a group of visitors to see one of the gorilla groups, which is always an exciting opportunity to share. She spotted silverback Vuba, now 21 years old, whom she first observed 11 years ago, before he turned into the majestic full-grown gorilla he is today.
The Karisoke Research Center is the heart of the Fossey Fund's operations in Rwanda, where we provide daily monitoring and protection for nine groups of gorillas, anti-poaching patrols, important scientific studies, and community programs in education and health. Stay tuned for information about a new exhibit we just opened at the Karisoke facility!
