Only six Eastern lowland gorillas remain in the park, a population so small that without intervention, they will not survive.
The habitat of Virunga National Park’s only lowland gorilla population is in a vulnerable state. The bamboo and high montane forests of Mt. Tshiaberimu are in the crosshairs of encroachment and armed conflict, pushing the world’s smallest population of gorillas to the brink. Protecting this habitat is critical to the family’s survival.
We need your help to build a sanctuary for the Eastern lowland Gorillas of Mt. Tshiaberimu. The equivalent of just six bitcoin will help our rangers safeguard this vulnerable population. Your support will help rebuild critical infrastructure destroyed during the conflict, impeding the movement of dangerous militia groups into the protected area, reducing human-wildlife conflict and land invasion.
