Just Like Us is a gorgeous tribute to our not-too-distant relatives as well as the courageous people who are risking their lives to protect them. In this remarkable memoir, we follow Dr. Quinn’s seven-year journey across seven African countries and Indonesia, where he photographed each great ape species in its natural habitat.
Our Wildlife ConserVet Education Project will empower the next generation of African wildlife veterinarians by funding advanced training in their home countries. Access to internships and graduate degree programs in Wildlife Medicine will provide the necessary skills and knowledge to create independent wildlife clinicians and/ or policy makers.
Improving the health and wellbeing of the local community not only limits disease transmission between humans and gorillas, it also provides an opportunity to build trust and goodwill and a willingness to partner in conserving mountain gorillas—an important natural and economic resource.
Docs4GreatApes is committed to improving the health of great ape populations, the communities that surround them, and the ecosystem we share, through education.
