The Gorilla Organization (GO), with locations in Rwanda and Uganda, focuses on securing the survival of the world’s last remaining gorillas with a unique grass roots approach to environmental protection. The Gorilla Organization promotes long term poverty alleviation and environmental education in the poor communities around the gorilla habitats, in the hopes that if locals’ lives are wrested from desperation, they won’t lean on the gorilla’s diminishing habitat and resources to subsist, significantly improving the chances for the species’ survival.

GO’s programs include organic farming education, distribution of fuel efficient stoves, installation of rainwater catchment systems, establishing Wildlife Clubs that promote conservation education, and support for traditional forest dwelling communities marginalized and displaced by the establishment of national parks.
