CTPH achieves gorilla conservation by enabling humans, wildlife and livestock to coexist through improving primary health care in and around Africa's protected areas
CTPH is raffling a unique gorilla vase created by renowned potter Miranda Thomas to commemorate the 10th anniversary of CTPH and raise funds to build our Health and Gorilla Conservation Center in Bwindi, Uganda (a UNESCO World Heritage site). This vase, which was created by the artist and donated to CTPH, has a retail value of $1,000.
Miranda is an animal lover and agreed to support CTPH with this limited edition vase (photo below). The vase is 12 inches high and features natural renderings of mountain gorillas.

- What does gorilla conservation have in common with the provision of contraceptives to women? How does rural-urban migration contribute to global warming? What does city planning in Kenya have to do with coastal erosion in the Philippines?
Such are the topics of conversation at the 23rd annual conference of the Society of Environmental Journalists (SEJ), running from Oct. 2-6 in what was, until 1960, referred to as “the dirtiest city in America”: Chattanooga, Tennessee.
Besides exploring an urban centre that has made the impressive about-turn from a highly polluted landscape into a model of sustainability, the nearly 300 journalists convened here are looking past their many differences to answer some fundamental questions about the profession.

High in the mountains of Eastern Uganda, I'm standing a few steps from a magnificent silverback gorilla, who grabs a thick vine with both hands and uses his massive strength to yank it down from the trees. A cascade of foliage falls around him and he begins -- one by one -- to eat the vine's leaves. Spend a few days photographing mountain gorillas and you quickly learn that it takes a lot of greenery to fuel a 400-pound vegetarian.
