Mountain Gorilla conservation, Uganda

Winner of The Whitley Gold Award & Whitley Award donated by WWF-UK. Gladys Kalema-Zikusoka (Uganda) is a vet, working in Uganda’s remote Bwindi region, to protect mountain gorillas and improve the lives of neighbouring communities, by encouraging health and hygiene measures that will reduce the risk of cross-infections, and enable local people to benefit from gorilla tourism without harm to the apes.
