Disease can spread quickly between humans, wildlife and livestock as a result of humans and gorillas living in close proximity. Even a common cold can be fatal to our ape cousins.

Dr. Gladys will give a fascinating talk about her unique approach to great ape conservation on 3 November at the Royal Geographic Society. Volcanoes Safaris is proud to support this event organised by Tusk Trust with a silent auction for a stay at Volcanoes Bwindi Lodge.
