BENEFITING: MOUNTAIN GORILLA CONSERVATION FUND
EVENT: Cincinnati Gorilla Run 2017
EVENT DATE: Apr 02, 2017
The annual Cincinnati Gorilla Run fundraiser has truly shown success stories. MGCF has been able to open the Ruth Keesling Wildlife Health and Research Center, which is the largest wildlife veterinary education facility in Africa. It includes a Bio Hazard Lab, which houses wildlife infectious diseases for research. Today, we have graduated 36 wildlife veterinarians through our programs and this has proven successful as the Mountain Gorilla is the only great ape primate in the world posting positive numbers in its population. When Ruth met the late Dr. Dian Fossey there were 248 Mountain Gorillas left in the world; today an estimated 880 are with us. Let’s keep doing good things together!
I thank you in advance for your support and really appreciate your generosity!
