Can you imagine a world without gorillas?

What about chimpanzees or bonobos?

If we don’t act now, then the next generation won’t have to imagine a world without Africa’s great apes... they’ll be living in it. We can’t let that happen. Thanks to the concerted efforts of wildlife advocates and conservationists in Africa and around the world, the mountain gorilla population has rebounded from just several hundred in 1989 to more than 1,000 today. But we need your support to keep up the momentum.

Don’t let this iconic African species become history. Join the fight to save these majestic creatures before it’s too late.
