There are hundreds, if not thousands, of conservation organizations in the world, many of which work in Africa. In my opinion, few of them come close to the effectiveness and importance of the Mountain Gorilla Veterinary Project – also known as the Gorilla Doctors. Working in the three countries where mountain gorillas are found – Rwanda, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, their mission is simply stated on their website: “The Gorilla Doctors are dedicated to saving the lives of critically-endangered mountain and Grauer’s gorillas through health care. Our international team of veterinarians is the only group providing these animals with direct, hands-on care in the wild.”

We encourage you to learn more about the Gorilla Doctors by subscribing to their newsletter. You’ll find it here: http://www.gorilladoctors.org/news/newsletter.html
