Saving A Species
One Gorilla At A Time

Gorilla Doctors is the only organization in the world dedicated to conserving mountain and eastern lowland (Grauer's) gorillas through veterinary medicine, science and a One Health approach. The life-saving work of our veterinarians is more important than ever during the COVID-19 pandemic and we appreciate your support as we continue to protect the health of these endangered animals.

As a result of poaching and the illegal trade of wild animals, Gorilla Doctors treat and care for confiscated gorilla orphans. We currently oversee the medical management of four mountain gorilla orphans, Ndeze, Ndakasi, Maisha, and Matabishi and one Grauer’s gorilla orphan, Kalonge, at Virunga National Park’s Senkwekwe Center. Gorilla Doctors also assist all three governments by providing emergency and quarantine care for all gorillas from the moment they are rescued until their transfer to a long-term care facility.
