Start Fundraising

In September, we celebrate 50 years of persistent determination in saving gorillas. For half a century, we’ve followed Dian’s example to never leave the gorillas without protection – especially when the going gets tough. During the month of September our goal is to raise $100,000 to protect gorillas’ future in the wild as part of our 50th anniversary campaign.
