50th anniversary campaign to raise $100,000

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. We hope you’ll join us, because once they’re gone, they’re gone forever. Together, we can protect their future through our actions today.
