Gorilla Socks are a very proud partner of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International and at least 10% of every pair of bamboo socks you buy goes to support gorilla conservation.
The Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund is dedicated to the conservation and protection of gorillas and their habitats. Through buying our bamboo socks you are helping the Fossey Fund to accomplish this mission, through their integrated conservation model that includes:
Daily Protection - to ensure that gorilla populations remain stable, Fossey Fund tracker and anti-poaching teams are in the forest 365 days a year protecting gorillas.
Scientific Research - as the world's longest running gorilla research site, the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund uses cutting-edge science to understand gorillas and their habitats and develop effective conservation strategies.
Educating Conservations - the Fossey Fund’s educational programs equip the next generation of African scientists with the skills they need to address the conservation challenges of the future.
Helping Communities - Effective conservation requires the support of local communities. The Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund works closely with the people who share the gorillas' forest homes to address health, education and other critical needs.
