When you take part in Climb For Your World and raise funds, you'll be helping WWF’s vital work with the International Gorilla Conservation Programme (IGCP) to protect the critically endangered mountain gorilla.
Through IGCP – a coalition of Fauna & Flora International and WWF, we’re working with the protected area authorities of Rwanda, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo, local communities and other NGOs to strengthen the monitoring and protection of mountain gorillas and their habitat, reduce human-wildlife conflict and improve local livelihoods. For example, we’ve been helping to install rainwater harvesting tanks in communities living around mountain gorilla habitats. This reduces the need for local communities to enter the protected areas and so reduces the risk of human diseases being passed to the mountain gorillas. We also promote responsible ecotourism that follows international best practice, to help local communities realise benefits from living alongside mountain gorillas.
Here are just a few things the money you raise could do to help protect threatened wildlife:
