For nearly three decades. The Gorilla Organization has been working hard to save the last remaining gorillas in the wild. We envisage a sustainable future for all gorillas, and their mountain rainforest home, maintained by the people living closest to them.
We are pioneers of community conservation and believe that by supporting food production and income generation in poor communities, we can reduce their dependence on the gorillas’ forest habitat for natural resources.
Working currently in Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo, The Gorilla Organization supports long-term economic development and conservation projects in frontline communities surrounding gorilla habitat, recognising the critical role they play in ensuring the gorillas' survival.There are many ways in which you can support The Gorilla Organization. You could make a donation, take part in one of our sporting events, or adopt one of the last mountain gorillas in the world - a perfect gift for the festive season.
