articles about the work of the dian fossey gorilla fund
The Atlanta-based Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International is dedicated to the conservation and protection of gorillas and their habitats in Africa, through research, conservation action, education and partnerships. Founded by Dian Fossey as the Digit Fund and renamed after her death, the Fund operates the Karisoke Research Centre in Rwanda, and maintains a staff of scientists, trackers and anti-poaching patrols in Volcanoes National Park.
The Fossey Fund also operates a conservation action outreach plan, working in conjunction with innovative community-based preserves in the Democratic Republic of Congo, helping to re-establish Congo's Maiko National Park, and participating in other critical conservation and community projects.
