Celebrating Earth Day
All of us at the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International want to recognize and honor the 43rd anniversary of Earth Day. The first Earth Day was launched on April 22, 1970, in the United States and is now celebrated by more than a billion people worldwide. Today, the Earth Day Network and numerous other environmental organizations work together to help secure a healthy future for the planet.
The work we do at the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International is aligned with the goals of Earth Day. We believe not only in saving gorillas but in protecting their habitats and helping the communities who live near them. We participate in education, science, health and direct conservation on the ground every day. We believe that a healthy environment benefits all. And we believe that every day is an Earth Day.
On this Earth Day, we especially want to thank all of our supporters and all of those who support conservation and environmental causes around the world.
