A project of CONSERVATION THROUGH PUBLIC HEALTH

The primary limit on the work of Conservation Through Public Health, www.ctph.org is the size of their modest gorilla research clinic.
The NGO has acquired a lovely piece of land adjacent to Silverback Lodge in Bwindi and is raising funds to build a greatly expanded gorilla clinic, as well as, a community education center that can 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.
Following the CNN coverage, Dr. Gladys received the Tourism Personality of the Month, April 2014 Award from Association of Uganda Tour Operators (AUTO)
