“We just had the most amazing experience. It was one of the most relaxing vacations I’ve been on.” – Ann Snyder

There are hundreds, if not thousands, of conservation organizations in the world, many of which work in Africa. But 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: “Gorilla Doctors is the only organization in the world dedicated to conserving mountain and eastern lowland (Grauer’s) gorillas through veterinary medicine, science and a One Health approach. The life-saving work of our veterinarians is more important than ever during the COVID-19 pandemic and we appreciate your support as we continue to protect the health of these endangered animals.”

Safari Professionals is honored to spread the news of their international team of veterinarians as the only group, at the time of this writing, providing these animals with direct, hands-on care in the wild. Safari Professionals encourages you to learn more about the Gorilla Doctors by subscribing to their newsletter. You’ll find it here: http://www.gorilladoctors.org/
