Did you know that gorillas share 98 percent of human DNA? Despite the power they possess, the gorillas are actually gentle creatures with human-like characteristics. However, they are critically endangered, which is why it is our duty to protect them and ensure their continued survival. At CTPH, not only have we reduced cross species disease transmission through gorilla health monitoring program and analysing fecal samples in gorillas, people and livestock, we have also improved community health through Village Health and Conservation Teams who bring services and educate the local community on the links between conservation, public health, ecotourism, and sustainable alternative livelihoods. We believe that the best way to ensure the gorillas’ health is to ensure harmonious living with the neighbouring communities.
