The Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund

About symbolic giving

When you adopt a gorilla, you or your gift recipient will receive (via email):

  • A personalized adoption certificate with a full-color photo of your new family member.
  • A profile with beautiful images of your gorilla along with detailed information from the field.
  • A digital subscription to the Gorilla Journal, the Fossey Fund’s quarterly newsletter.
  • A special video of your new family member.
  • A downloadable image of your gorilla family member.
  • A twice yearly update on your new gorilla family member.

 The Fossey Fund’s adoption program is unique — while the gorillas have graciously allowed humans to share their habitat, the animals we monitor and protect every single day are truly wild and are not in a sanctuary. When you symbolically adopt a gorilla through the Fossey Fund, you help ensure the gorillas’ wildness and protection for generations to come.
