Dr. Dian Fossey was born on this day in 1932. Today we honor the life and incredible achievements of our founder, and we celebrate the success of mountain gorillas—the only great ape species to show a population increase in recent decades. Gorillafund.org/blog

Check out this camera trap photo the Fossey Fund just received from our Research and Conservation Program Manager Escobar Binyini! It’s a silverback Grauer’s gorilla from one of the gorilla groups we’re tracking and protecting at our Nkuba-Biruwe field site in DRC. Grauer’s gorillas are the largest gorilla subspecies, and this guy is huge!
