We're over the moon excited to partner with The Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund! In 1967, Dr. Dian Fossey founded the Karisoke™ Research Center in Rwanda’s Virunga mountains to protect and study the endangered mountain gorillas. Although Fossey’s life was cut short, her work has continued through the Karisoke Research Center and grown into conservation efforts for other wildlife and programs for people who live near the gorillas. The gorillas depend on us for their protection and their future. They also depend on people like you, who care enough to do something about it.

Young Western Lowland Gorillas spend most of their day climbing trees, playing, and chasing one another. They often remind human observers of children. Unfortunately, these beauties are under siege. Hunting, habitat destruction, and disease have reduced populations to alarmingly low levels. We’ve lost more than 60% of their population over the last 20 years. Even if all of the threats to Western Lowland Gorillas were removed, scientists...
