Donation supports conservation of endangered gorillas, the mascot of Gorilla Trades, Inc.
ATLANTA, GA —Gorilla Trades Inc., announced today that it has become an official visionary sponsor of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International. Gorilla Trades, which is known for humorous commercials portraying their gorilla mascot as a master of the stock markets, has also made a $25,000 cash donation. The donation will support the Fossey Fund’s ongoing efforts to conserve and protect gorillas and their habitats in Africa through daily monitoring, protection and study.
“We are truly excited to help and support the animal that inspired the name of our company,” said a spokesperson for Gorilla Trades. “The Fossey Fund is an incredible organization that makes a remarkable difference in gorilla conservation.We believe the gorilla represents both strength and endurance, which is why we initially decided upon the gorilla as our company's mascot. We are honored to become a sponsor to such a meaningful species."
The Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund is committed to the conservation and protection of gorillas, as started by its founder Dr. Dian Fossey in 1967. The organization’s programs in Africa include daily gorilla tracking and anti-poaching patrols, rescue and rehabilitation of orphaned gorillas, conservation education, scientific studies and community health and economic support. The Fossey Fund also collaborates with other organizations internationally in these activities, as it looks for the best ways to save this endangered species.
“Gorilla Trades’ contribution will be very beneficial to our gorilla conservation efforts in Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo,” says Clare Richardson, president and CEO of the Fossey Fund. “There are many threats to the gorillas’ survival, including poaching, loss of habitat, and disease. This contribution and others like it ensure our intensive conservation programs remain strong. We are thrilled to have a great organization like Gorilla Trades partner with us.”
