CTPH achieves gorilla conservation by enabling humans, wildlife and livestock to coexist through improving primary health care in and around Africa's protected areas
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.

The Gorillas of Bwindi - Dr. Gladys and CTPH by Turk Pipkin Writer, filmmaker, co-founder of The Nobelity Project

High in the mountains of Eastern Uganda, I'm standing a few steps from a magnificent silverback gorilla, who grabs a thick vine with both hands and uses his massive strength to yank it down from the trees. A cascade of foliage falls around him and he begins -- one by one -- to eat the vine's leaves. Spend a few days photographing mountain gorillas and you quickly learn that it takes a lot of greenery to fuel a 400-pound vegetarian.
