Dr. Gladys Kalema-Zikusoka received the Association of Uganda Tour Operators (AUTO) Medal for "Tourism Personality of the Month April 2014"
Conservation Through Public Health (CTPH) CEO Dr. Gladys Kalema-Zikusoka was awarded the 2014 month of April Tourism Personality medal at the AUTO secretariat for her outstanding tourism achievement in creating awareness about striking the right balance between conservation and economics on CNN African Voices.
The primary limit on the work of Conservation Through Public Health, is the size of our modest gorilla research clinic.
We acquired a lovely piece of land adjacent to Silverback Lodge in Bwindi and are raising funds to build a greatly expanded gorilla clinic, as well as, a community education center that will go even further in connecting visitors to this amazing World Heritage Site.
With funding from Tusk and individual donors, construction of a permanent Health and Gorilla Conservation Center in Bwindi began in April 2014.
This effort is worthy of support from all quarters, and is one of the great and inspiring examples of how we could be partnering with local communities to protect endangered species in many corners of the globe.
