Gorilla Doctors

Gorilla Doctors is dedicated to saving the mountain and Grauer's gorillas one gorilla patient at a time and is the only group providing these animals with direct, hands-on care in the wild. Its international veterinarian team provides medical care to sick and injured mountain and Grauer's gorillas living in the national parks of Rwanda, Uganda, and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). With only 880 mountain gorillas left in the world today, the health and well being of every individual gorilla is vital to the species’ survival. In addition to providing eastern gorillas with healthcare, its veterinary team helps rescue and treat mountain and Grauer’s gorillas orphaned by poachers and conducts research on emerging pandemic threats in human and wildlife populations in Uganda and Rwanda.
