ACTION:GORILLAS is a non-profit project aimed at bringing the world up-close and personal with Mountain Gorillas and Grauer’s Gorillas of the Gorilla Highlands region. We envisage a future where humans feel intimately connected with these endangered Great Apes, knowing them by name — and even choosing to become their godparents.

Our first step towards this goal is to equip park rangers and gorilla trackers (local people who daily keep an eye on gorilla groups) with personal video and photo gear and training. This will guarantee regular capture of special gorilla moments that now just go by, lost in time. We will make sure they become available to the whole wide world, to enjoy and to learn about the actual lives of gorillas.

ACTION:GORILLAS is a collaboration between the Gorilla Highlands Initiative and Gorilla Inu, a social currency for global communities.
