Who Are We?
The MGCSC is a volunteer-based charitable organization whose members are passionate and dedicated to helping save the worlds endangered wild mountain and lowland gorillas in Africa.
Our Mission
a) to help secure the future of wild gorillas by increasing the number of wildlife veterinarians in the field; to monitor and provide the highest level of veterinary care to mountain and lowland gorillas suffering from life-threatening illness and injury, and
 b) to address environmental issues that affect the poor, low income and underserved communities through resource management, environment and conservation studies, resilience planning and preparedness.
To increase the number of wildlife veterinarians by providing scholarships in “Wildlife Health and Management” at the Makerere university and other like universities in Uganda, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
The scholarship program in “Wildlife Health and Management” is an investment and plays key role in the future for the region providing leadership to improve the health and welfare for everyone.
With only 1063 mountain gorillas left in the world,
Conservation is key.
Every individual Gorilla matters. 
The loss of even a few individuals impacts their kin, 
social groups, and genetic diversity. 
That's why preserving their health and the populations that influence their habitat is so important. 
​​We would like to thank everyone for their support over the past ten years. Through your donations and participating in our fundraising events;
The Edmonton Gorilla Run and Edmonton Ice Cream Runwe are well on our way to providing our first three scholarships.
We Cannot Do This Without You
