Congo Gorillas Threatened By War

As I am writing this, war has engulfed the Virunga National Park in the DR Congo, home of the mountain gorillas on the Congo side of the border (I saw them across the border in neighbouring Rwanda).

Therefore, I decided to donate some money to support the park rangers and their families who have been displaced by the recent fighting. They risk their lives to protect the gorillas and are now living in refugee camps in squalor. I gave money, and you can too by going here. You can specify that your small donation goes to the rangers, fuel for vehicles, etc. Also make sure you enter in your amount under the “one-time” donation section, unless you want to donate monthly.

This is about all I can do from here. I hope the rangers and gorillas get through this ok.

    My wife and i were very relieved when Chris could conclude his investigations through the entire ideas he gained from your own blog.

And we all remember we now have you to be grateful to because of that. The type of explanations you’ve made, the simple blog menu, the friendships your site aid to foster – it’s everything spectacular, and it is aiding our son in addition to us understand this concept is enjoyable, which is exceedingly fundamental. Thanks for everything!
