Dr. Gladys Has Been Named A Finalist For The 2019 Tusk Award For Conservation In Africa!

The Tusk Conservation Awards, in partnership with Investec Asset Management, celebrate the extraordinary work of dedicated conservationists from across Africa, whose work and lives might otherwise go unnoticed outside their fields.


Now in its seventh year, the Awards ceremony will for the first time be held at The Empire Cinema, Leicester Square, London, and will be hosted by Kate Silverton.


Good luck on November 21, Dr. Gladys!

A word from Dr. Gladys

Conservation Through Public Health’s founder and CEO, Dr. Gladys Kalema-Zikusoka, is one of the leading conservationists and scientists working to save the endangered mountain gorillas of East Africa. The first full time veterinarian for the Uganda Wildlife Authority, Dr. Gladys is internationally recognized for her conservation work and founded CTPH in 2003.

Volunteer, Intern, & Research

Conservation Through Public Health hosts volunteers, interns, and researchers throughout the year at various locations. Many choose to work at the Gorilla Health and Community Centre, where we analyze fecal samples from gorillas, livestock, and people to learn more about the disease vectors that harm sensitive gorilla populations. We have a variety of ongoing projects and welcome those interested to contact us directly.
