The Community

Big goals are achieved in small steps. Our conservation efforts are organized in a way that allows the surrounding community to take ownership and participate in the home of the gorillas.

Involving the local Batwa community

Whether it is humans poaching wildlife or wildlife attacking people’s livestock, the problem cuts both ways: the needs of people and wildlife are not in harmony. As human populations grow with the development of industry and infrastructure, our programs balance multiple priorities to mitigate the threats facing endangered species and historic wildlife habitats.
