Banovich Wildlife Foundation donates to MOUNTAIN GORILLA VETERINARY PROJECT (MGVP)

There are approximately 720 Mountain Gorillas left on earth living only in two small parks; one in Uganda and one that includes a corner of Uganda, Rwanda, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Core Focus: Critical Attention & Support in order to ensure a healthy future for this special animal, the gorilla. Ensuring they are monitored on a regular basis and provided life-saving medical care, have health studies, and all is done to build local capacity in veterinary medicine and ecosystem health. "My friend Jack Hanna had introduced me to the great work that Dr. Mike Cranfield and his staff are doing at the MVP and having visited their facility in Rwanda, I saw first-hand that their work is absolutely essential for the long-term survival of the mountain gorillas."
