Dear Friend,

A new civil war has begun in eastern Congo. On Sunday July 8th, much of Virunga National Park was overrun by rebel units. All ranger families have been evacuated.

40 rangers have remained behind to protect the park and a family of orphaned mountain gorillas that live at the station.

They need your help.

On behalf our rangers and their families, thank you.

Warden of Virunga National Park
