Two orphaned gorillas are waiting to meet their new families – but they need you to make it a reality!
Niout and Maya are orphans of the bushmeat trade and were brought to the Fernan-vaz gorilla project (FVGP) in Gabon earlier this year, via helicopter! PASA member FVGP rehabilitates orphaned and rescued gorillas with the aim of returning them to the wild. Niout and Maya have just finished their quarantine period and are now ready to join their new family – a group of nine gorillas currently living freely on an island at the sanctuary. However, before this can happen, we need to build a safe integration enclosure on the island – this means that Niout and Maya will be able to stay within the safety of an enclosure while they are introduced to the other gorillas. Once they are all comfortable with each other, caregivers can open the doors and they can finally be free on the island.
Will you help Niout and Maya join their new family today? FVGP desperately needs to raise $40,000 to build this enclosure – without your help, Niout and Maya will not be able to join the other gorillas on the island.
Once this enclosure is built, it will mean gorilla orphans that come to FVGP will be able to safely join the island and have a chance at being released to the wild! Wild gorilla populations are declining rapidly because of habitat loss, poaching and the wildlife trade, so every gorilla we can save and return to the wild makes a huge difference. This enclosure is the last piece needed to allow orphans Niout and Maya to finally have a new family – will you help them today?
