You will also get to help local charities and the amazing work they do in local communities. Education and awareness is a big part of these programs, its vital local people get involved and try to stop things like poaching. The more local people can be informed about conservation efforts the better chance these amazing creatures stand a chance of surviving in the wild. Some programs include letting local people and school children watch films and gorillas to show them the dangers the wildlife is facing and how they can help.
