Mountain Gorilla Veterinarian Project

Mountain Gorilla Veterinarian Project

For nearly 20 years, veterinarians have been helping mountain gorillas survive by providing them with life-saving veterinary care for human-caused or life-threatening illnesses and injuries. The project began as one veterinarian, but has grown now to include an entire team of veterinarians who work together to track ailing gorillas, and treat them when needed, in their native habitat. Most recently, it has joined forces with the UC Davis Wildlife Health Center to advance its One Health approach to conservation.

The mountain gorillas are the only great apes whose numbers are actually growing. Although this species remains endangered, their numbers have grown from 248 to over 360 individuals in the Virunga Massif in Rwanda alone. The total number of mountain gorillas is estimated to be 700-750 individuals.

Without the MGVP, mountain gorillas might not exist today. Still, these animals remain highly endangered due to threats from war, poaching, habitat destruction and human disease. Their numbers remain critically low, with no fall back breeding population in sanctuaries or zoos.

Painted Dog Conservation Project

Painted Dog Conservation Project

Painted Dog Conservation's mission is to protect and increase the range and numbers of painted dogs through hands on conservation, education, community involvement and international support.

Our belief is that conservation does not occur on an island.  Our objective is to undertake a holistic approach that encompasses all the stakeholders, particularly school children and local communities.

PDC was originally established as Painted Dog Research in 1992 by Gregory Rasmussen. During the first two years the human-induced carnage from snares, shooting and road kills accounted for 95% of all dog mortalities. Early public presentations showed prejudice and ignorance and it was clear that unless this situation was addressed, the species could become extinct. The initial emphasis was thus to identify the critical issues and develop a pragmatic and holistic strategy that would make a substantial, lasting contribution to Painted Dogs, nature conservation and, very importantly, to the lives of the local people.

The Hiram Blauvelt Art Museum

The Hiram Blauvelt Art Museum (HBAM) was established in 1957 by the Blauvelt Demarest Foundation, a legacy of the late Hiram Blauvelt, philanthropist, conservationist and collector. Through the contributions of his private wildlife and big game collections, he hoped to promote the cultural value of wildlife art and the need for the conservation of its subjects. Located in an 1893 cedar shingle and turret style carriage house, the museum is one of only five museums in the United States dedicated solely to wildlife art. The Blauvelt’s permanent collection, while focusing on the works of contemporary artists, includes the deceased masters of the genre, as well as an Audubon folio.
