About

We want to save gorillas from the threat of poaching in Africa.

Protection of gorillas from poaching is a primary focus of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International and, in particular, the Karisoke™ Research Center.

Protection activities at Karisoke™ consist of anti-poaching patrols in the forest and a daily, dawn-to-dusk human presence with all of the more than 120 gorillas we monitor.

In January 2012 alone we removed 195 poaching snares. With your gift we can continue this level of protection for gorillas.
