Protecting Gorillas and Surrounding Communities Uganda

Uganda Our goal is a world where gorillas and other wildlife are healthy and their habitats are secure, and where they co-exist with healthy communities. UNESCO World Heritage Site, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in Uganda is home to 43% of the remaining 1,063 endangered mountain gorillas and is one of two remaining strongholds for the species. Surrounded by some of the poorest communities in Uganda, with very limited access to health and social services, the park and its wildlife are under serious threat from human activity. Sharing 98.4% DNA with humans, mountain gorillas are highly susceptible to human diseases. This project improves the health and hygiene of people living in proximity to gorillas to reduce the likelihood of spread of zoonotic diseases, such as COVID-19, common flu, tuberculosis, scabies, intestinal worms and dysentery.
