BENEFITING: VIRUNGA FUND INC
The Virunga National Park in eastern DRC, contains over 50% of sub-Saharan Africa’s biodiversity and is home to about 200 of the earth’s last 720 critically endangered mountain gorillas. Virunga is also the second oldest national park in the world, behind only Yellowstone. Despite this, the forests and amazing animals of the park, most notably the mountain gorilla, are in a desperate fight for their survival. I am personally very involved in Virunga through my husband who is the chief warden and who is steering a remarkable effort to protect and preserve this with a dedicated team of rangers and online supporters at www.gorillacd.org.
