To learn more about the Mountain Gorilla Veterinary Project and their current conservation efforts,
There are approximately 740 Mountain Gorillas left on Earth; they live only in two small parks in the borderlands of Uganda, Rwanda and the Congo. With such a fragile population, the effects of illegal trapping, illnesses, and transmitted viruses (animal and human) are drastically magnified, and, if left unchecked, could lead to complete extinction.
The Mountain Gorilla Veterinary Project monitors the health of these gentle giants, offers gorilla orphan care, and provides life-saving medical attention when needed.
