CONSERVATION THROUGH PUBLIC HEALTH (CTPH)

The CTPH project takes a unique approach to gorilla conservation in Uganda by focusing not only on gorilla health but also that of humans and livestock; people and livestock living in close proximity to each other pose a high risk of disease transmission.  This project has overseen the development of a permanent Gorilla Health and Community Conservation Center. Current funding from the CCFA will enable the CTPH project to further expand and strengthen it’s gorilla health monitoring work.
