CTPH achieves gorilla conservation by enabling humans, wildlife and livestock to coexist through improving primary health care in and around Africa's protected areas
Last November a film crew made a fascinating documentary about Dr Gladys and the work of Conservation Through Public Health. They tracked gorillas through the jungle with Dr Gladys and watched our team collect gorilla dung samples and check them for parasites. Along the way they also learned about our partner communities and why their improved health and wellbeing is so important for their neighbours the gorillas.
China Central TV released the documentary on Sunday 3rd February 2013 and it’s free to view. Please settle back and watch the show to learn more about Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and its unique inhabitants (it’s 30 minutes).

A census of mountain gorillas, Gorilla beringei beringei, conducted in 2011 in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Uganda, confirms a minimum population of 400 gorillas, raising the world population of mountain gorillas to 880. The official result was released on 13 - November 2012 by the Uganda Minister of Tourism, Wildlife, and Antiquities, Hon. Maria Mutagamba alongside representatives of the Uganda Wildlife Authority, Conservation Through Public Health and the International Gorilla Conservation Programme.
