An evening on gorilla conservation in London

Thursday 3rd November, Royal Geographical Society, London, SW7 2AR

In the conservation world, the sustained growth of the mountain gorilla population has been a rare success story. Nevertheless, due to the ever-present threats of illegal killings, injuries from snares, and political instability in DR Congo, as well as the risk of disease transmission by people, mountain gorillas remain critically endangered, with only 880 individuals in Uganda, Rwanda and DR Congo.

To learn more about mountain gorillas and a unique approach to saving them in Uganda and elsewhere, join us for the Tusk Conservation Lecture by the inspirational Dr Gladys Kalema Zikusoka, which is generously sponsored by Artemis Investment Management LLP. You will also have the opportunity to bid for a stay at Bwindi Lodge in the heart of gorilla country, in a silent auction generously supported by Volcanoes Safaris. 

Tickets: Lecture Only: £15; Lecture + Reception (Drinks & Canapés): £35

Please note that the talk is suitable for families with children aged ten or over
