Special World Gorilla Day Presentation: Celebrate, and learn from Tufts Experts!
With just over one thousand remaining in the mountains of central Africa, the mountain gorilla is a critically endangered species. Learn about the threats to, and efforts to protect the mountain gorilla from Tufts own experts, Felicia Nutter and Christopher Whittier.

Professors Nutter and Whittier have been studying, working and conducting research in African since 1989 and have traveled throughout the continent and lived in Tanzania and Rwanda. They were veterinarians for the mountain gorillas in the early 2000s and in addition to providing veterinary care for wild gorillas, also conducted research, trained veterinarians and students, and helped build employee health programs and the first sanctuaries for confiscated gorillas in that region of Africa.

This presentation will cover the conservation success story of mountain gorillas along with interesting facts about them and the ongoing threats to their conservation.
