• Grauer's gorillas

    are among the world's most

    endangered primates.
  • They are hunted for meat

    and sold as pets. War has pushed them

    to the brink of extinction.
  • 5 million people have died

    in Congo's ongoing conflict, leaving families

    broken and struggling.
  • At GRACE, we help orphaned

    gorillas heal & give them a chance

    to be wild again.
  • We empower communities

    to take conservation

    into their own hands.
  • And we bring people

    a reason to hope for

    a brighter future.

A future for gorillas, built on community

GRACE Overview
In 2008, ICCN, the Congolese Wildlife Authority, urged the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International to find a solution to the growing number of infant gorillas confiscated from poachers. Thus was born the idea of the Gorilla Rehabilitation and Education (GRACE) Center, an innovative rescue and rehabilitation facility, built in a remote forested area where the gorillas are not only cared for as youngsters but learn skills for eventual reintroduction to the wild. The GRACE Center works to rescue, rehabilitate, and reintroduce orphaned Grauer's gorillas back into their native habitat in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
