Mission: The Gorilla Organization's mission is to secure the survival of the world's last gorillas in the wild.

Principal Research Programs: The Gorilla Organization is directly involved in the Mount Tshiaberimu Conservation Project and the Walikale Community Gorilla Reserve, both in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
