Support

As a coalition of international conservation organizations, the International Gorilla Conservation Programme is unique. Fauna & Flora International and the World Wide Fund for Nature (also known as the World Wildlife Fund) have joined forces to ensure the survival of the critically endangered mountain gorilla and its habitat.

Any donation directly processed through this webpage will be transacted in GBP and earmarked for the International Gorilla Conservation Programme via our coalition partner, FFI, based in the UK. Thank you for your support!
