Gorilla Conservation

Volunteer with gorillas

Participants in gorilla conservation projects are needed to fight the threats of extinction for these primates. Volunteer with gorillas and you could ultimately be helping the local ecosystems of the area by keeping these species alive and well. Current threats include hunting, trapping, farming violations, commercial logging, construction work in the wild and the illegal trading of bush meat.

Most gorilla conservation projects are hosted in Africa, particularly Uganda, Rwanda, Democratic Republic of Congo and Cameroon. These places are home to an abundance of natural beauty and some of the rarest animals on the planet.  A particularly unique species of gorilla that needs your help is the mountain gorilla. With less than 900 remaining in the wild living in just a few African countries, the largest living primates on earth are now in danger of extinction.

Volunteers on gorilla conservation projects might be involved in gorilla tracking, educational projects or even tree planting. There might even be opportunities to get involved with community workshops, teaching the locals new and exciting conservation techniques.
