Friend-A-Gorilla is a Uganda Wildlife Authority initiative to promote and educate the world about Uganda's mountain gorillas.
With only about 720 mountain gorillas left in the world, Uganda - home to a little over half the world’s population of this highly endangered species - has stepped up efforts to involve the whole world in our conservation initiative. In doing so, we hope to educate the public, spark your interest and have you become a close friend of these endangered gentle giants.
Friend-A-Gorilla will give friends of the forest a chance to befriend any of the habituated gorillas in Uganda's Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, for just $1 US per gorilla friend. Enjoy them on your own or share your gorilla friends with your human friends.
At www.friendagorilla.org you can view their photos, videos and track their families in the forest through GPS coordinates given to Friend-A-Gorilla by the actual trackers that visit them daily.
