Impactors For Gorillas

Did You Know….
that the last mountain gorilla you saw was only ONE of about 1000 in the ENTIRE world?

How Many of You Know... that The Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund is THE REASON mountain gorillas went from a “Critically Endangered” species in the 1980’s, to recently being reassessed in 2018 as only “endangered”?

Donate Today!!!!
To help ensure the Mountain Gorillas can continue to thrive!!!!

It would be Wonderful
if you could help us to help The Ellen Degeneres Wildlife Fund, created by Ellen Degeneres, build her 11-acre campus to house and support the continuation of The Dian Fossey Fund’s amazing work!!!

Every Penny Counts!!!!
When it comes to ensuring the future of this endangered species.

The Dian Fossey Fund
has been making strides in saving the mountain gorillas since 1967. When Dian began her mission, there were almost no gorillas left in the world. In the 1980’s, The Fossey Fund helped to increase the gorilla population to 240. Today, almost 50 years later, there are now 1004 mountain gorillas in existence.

Through the massive efforts of The Dian Fossey Fund, continuing efforts have worked, however the work remains vitally important to ensuring the future of our Mountain Gorillas.

A permanent home was the ONE THING that The Dian Fossey Fund and her Gorilla mission was missing for the last 40 years since Dian’s untimely death. Ellen has stepped forward creating The Ellen Fund, to carry on with her childhood hero’s legacy. It was her way to give the Gorillas a permanent home in Rwanda and to help ensure their future within our World.

She now joins Dian as a protector and a champion of the mountain gorillas, and we are asking for you to partner along with us!!!!

Your Donations become the support system for the future of this Planet and a cause near and dear to our hearts……
