Issue

The land surrounding the national parks where gorillas live is some of the most densely populated in Africa. As a result of intense human activity near and inside the parks, gorillas face numerous threats to their survival, including poaching and habitat loss. Because gorillas share 98.5% of their genes with humans, their greatest health threat may come from human-borne infectious diseases.

Response

The Gorilla Doctors are dedicated to conserving Wild Mountain and Eastern Lowland (or Grauer's) gorillas through life-saving veterinary medicine and their One Health approach. Their international team of veterinarians is the only group providing these critically endangered animals with direct, hands-on care in the wild.
